Securing the Site: identification of instability’s intrinsic causes; safe rapid strategies of intervention;
provisional supports; reducing instability’s causes using already “definitive” interventions; setting up a safe
Definitive Interventions: in-depht analysis of instability’s causes (diagnostic campaigns/ mathematical
models); sealing of gaps in the structures of collapsed vaults and arches; reinforcement of the most
vulnerable elements using advanced technologies.
Methodology: archival and documentary sources analysis; 3D laser scan survey; diagnostic investigation;
steel reinforcements selection; mathematical model of the Dome.
C) (Application): immediate supports; operating froma a safe zone; investigation; intervention.
