Abstract

Nine years after the earthquake of 6 April 2009, it is possible to analyze strategies and current processes the reconstruction of L’Aquila and the centres of its territory, highlighting positivity and criticality, in order to identify the possible optimization of methodologies and procedures, useful for present and future emergencies. An undoubted positivity is the financing system for interventions of protection of buildings of historical/architectural and landscape values. A first criticality is the “non synchronic reconstruction”, both in terms of financial resources and in terms of validation and implementation procedures. A second problem is the “parcelization” of interventions. A third problem is denotable as “divided knowledge”, that is the process of knowledge is discretized, according to the individual building or block project’s validation procedure. In the case of the historic centre of L’Aquila, the paradox is that we have an extraordinary knowledge, unique and without precedents, with thousands of surveys, tests and analysis on materials.
