Excellence course of the Doctoral School of the Politecnico di Torino, organized in collaboration with the KIM Getty project. See the attached poster.
1st Italian Workshop of Shell and Spatial Structures (IWSS 2020) and virtual tour of Nervi's halls of Torino Esposizioni
Prof. Rosario Ceravolo will deliver a keynote on condition assessment and conservation of iconic concrete structures at the annual Symposium of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE), to be held in Wroclaw on 7-9 October 2020.
A few days ago the group, together with the industrial partners of the KIM project, completed the preliminary site visit of the Pier Luigi Nervi's halls. The survey is the baseline of the experimental activities that will be carried out in the near future.
We are organizing an International Summer School entitled "The natural form of concrete – Analysis and testing on Nervi’s Ferrocemento" to be held at Politecnico di Torino in mid June 2021 for MSc and PhD students of engineering, architecture and pertinent disciplines.
Invited Seminar - “Restaurare il cemento: materia e struttura/Restaurer Les bétons: matière et structure”
Prof. Rosario Ceravolo presented the Keeping It Modern project on Torino Esposizioni at the meeting “Restaurare il cemento: materia e struttura/Restaurer Les bétons: matière et structure” organized by the ClusterLab HEMODERN of Università Iuav di Venezia with ICOMOS France.
