Villa Reale, Milano

Research contract between the Municipality of Milan and Politecnico di Milano

The building nowadays known as Villa Reale and housing the Gallery of Modern Art of Milan (GAM) was built at the end of the 18th century. A multidisiciplinary surveying strategy was designed to analyse the indoor climate of Villa Reale, coupling diagnostics and historical research. The on-site measurements of the hygrothermal parameters have been performed as recommended by the Italian standard UNI 10829:1999 providing two types of analysis: 1) Spot monitoring, Psychrometrics and Thermographic analysis. 2) Continuum monitoring of T (°C) and RH (%).
