RENOVATION: In the years from 1990 to 1993, the building, which had suffered damage from the 1984 earthquake, was the subject of a careful and correct anti-seismic consolidation work, with underground masonry works, external and internal micropiles, reinforced perforations on all the intersections of the walls external and internal, vidium ring connecting the terminal part, injections of cement treated with total saturation on the entire masonry; this intervention was considered exemplary and the relative technical and photographic documentation at the various stages and interventions can be viewed; the intervention was absolutely respectful of the typology of the building which has fully maintained its original appearance also from the chromatic point of view for the connecting mortars.
