Abstract

Architectural heritage can be rediscovered also by finding a new use for it, pursuing an appropriate regeneration that accounts for the cultural features of the territory and is at the same time respectful of the past history of the buildings. The fortress of Arnara (Latium, Italy) was chosen as a case study, since it is a perfect example of a Middle Age fortress, well preserved during the centuries despite the high seismic hazard of that area. The overall project here described tries to balance both architectural and structural aspects, where the structural intervention makes use of a tenso-structure that, at the same time, highlights some valuable architectural features of the fortress while improving its seismic resistance.
