The Adriseismic final meeting took place on 17 January 2023 at the Iiple headquarters in Bologna.
During the conference Adriseismic had the opportunity to present, to the stakeholders, the results obtained during these years of work, carried out by the partners in their Countries.

Results obtained by Adriseismic’s WPTs

The three WPTs have achieved important results, bringing to fruition what the project set out to do in the initial stages. Thanks to field tests and the numerous workshops that took place during the life of the project, Adriseismic validated a rapid method for evaluating the seismic risk. A valid method for masonry and reinforced concrete buildings.
Partners have also created a series of lessons, on our dedicated Moodle platform, to encourage the continuous training of technicians, construction workers and civil protection.
The project also created a database of rules, regulations, incentives and forms of insurance present in the various Countries involved in the project, so as to verify the scalability and replicability of what the partners have evaluated as good practices.

Prevent seismic risk through urban planning

During the meeting Adriseismic’s stakeholders also had the opportunity to listen to the report on the progress of the recovery and restoration works made necessary by the earthquake in the Marche region in 2016 (thanks to Professor Giovanni Marinelli and engineer Luca Domenella, from the Marche Polytechnic University).

During the presentation prof. Marinella and eng. Domenella explained the importance of balancing interventions between public and private spaces and buildings, a theme that was at the heart of the Adriseismic project, and also the importance of safety for citizens.

Tools for assessing seismic vulnerability at the urban scale

Professor Paolo Tiraboschi (from the IUAV of Venice) presented a lesson entitled “Tools for assessing seismic vulnerability at the urban scale”.

Professor Foraboschi underlines the critical content of the guidelines on anti-earthquake practices and highlights the difficulties of modeling as regards prevention. At the end of his speech he presents two case studies, carried out in Florence, on the Arnolfo tower and on the Ponte Vecchio.
