Palazzo Borsari in Finale Emilia
The building is certainly one of the most architecturally interesting constructions in the lower Modena area. The dating that Baldoni traces back to 1660. The interventions on the vertical structures foresee a widespread use of the “scuci e cuci” technique. The horizontal structures are made up almost entirely of brick vaults, some of which completely collapsed and others heavily damaged. The intervention to be carried out on the vaults has the following purposes: a) reconstruction or restoration; b) consolidation; c) reduction of thrusts; d) lightening of inertial masses in order to minimize seismic actions. Thrust reduction will be achieved by placing a hoop in correspondence with the rhenium or slightly above it depending on the available space of a steel frame made with UPN 160 profiles anchored to the walls of the vault with reinforced perforations. The interventions on the roof include the complete replacement of the same made with wooden beams.
