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 (%).

This project aims to evaluate a Temperierung system placed in Oratorio di Santo Stefano, a 14th-century frescoed chapel. The research methodology has included different tyoes of noninvasive techniques: Psychrometrics and Thermographic analysis and continuum monitoring of T (°C) and RH (%).

The objective of this project was the maintenance of the cavea of the amphitheatre through the restoration of the mortar joints.
The diagnostic project included a survey of the draining systems, an analysis of the water infiltrations and a thermographic mapping of the water leakage through vaults and masonry structures.
The results of this research, along with a study of the effects of the traditional practice of adding some metallic materials to the plaster, were used to investigate and develop the most appropriate materials and mixtures for case-sepcific interventions.
