Abstract

The problem regarding seismic risk for school buildings has become increasingly important over the last years and national projects have been set underway to improve and adapt existing buildings to seismic risk. Many schools were built during historical periods when, even though foreseeing anti-seismic measures, were based on prerequisites different to those of today. It has become an urgent need to examine projects for a vast number of existing school buildings in relation to the important social role that they have always played.
