Abstract

The porticoes, together with medieval masonry towers, are the architectural element, which mainly characterizes the city of Bologna, northern Italy. These porticoes, which extend all inside the city centre for a total length of almost 40 kilometres, have a high artistic and cultural relevance at the point that they are candidates as “Unesco World Heritage Site”. One of portico of highest heritage value is that next to the church of Santa Maria dei Servi, which is suffering important structural pathologies requiring urgent strengthening interventions. The ones strictly necessary to preserve the stability have been already implemented. It is known, that for historical constructions appropriate strategies of interventions are to be adopted with special attention in the aspects related to the compatibility, durability, integrity of the original configuration. The aim of this paper is to identify the main criticalities and priorities of interventions. Based on the identified criticalities and priorities possible strategies of interventions are finally identified. A possible cause of the actual bad state of conservation could be related to the continues vibrations induced by the traffic. For this reason, measurements noises have been recently conducted by the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) in order to quantify their influence of the stress levels of the columns of the portico.
