Reinforced brick light-weight vaults
At the beginning of the Thirties, Italy witnessed a widespread experimentation in new building methods resulting in the construction of examples of quite daring vaulted roofing using reinforced and partly prefabricated brick blocks, a predominantly national material. This research resulted in the construction of many buildings, initially to be used for industrial purposes, which offer interesting construction and structural solutions and are distinguished by their large-sized roofing, with single or double curved surfaces, a significant feature of internal spaces.
