Abstract

In sustainability theme it is very important to know if the historical existing buildings may be used nowadays or they must be refurbished or, even, demolished and reconstructed. Among them may be included even reinforced concrete structures. The paper deals with the steps that plan out the understanding of the behaviour of such structures: critical approach, original documents research and interpretation, paraphrase of former calculations, safety assessment by means of current calculation methods and codes. As an exemplification of the above mentioned procedures two significant cases, both in Cagliari, are presented in this work. The CasMez pavilion, a folded plate RC structures, and the San Domenico Church, a meaningful example of the interaction between modern and ancient architecture.
