Abstract

Si documenta la parte della ricerca che si occupa della sperimentazione di un metodo di indagine strumentale per la definizione delle prestazioni energetiche degli edifici storici allo stato di fatto. La mancanza di specifici strumenti di indagine del comportamento energetico degli edifici storici spinge a elaborare un metodo alternativo di indagine che permetta di ottenere un dato quanto più preciso possibile. Tale dato di partenza, infatti, permette di progettare l’intervento di riqualificazione energetica e guida verso la scelta di strategie e materiali più adeguati per il rispetto dei valori architettonici e testimoniali del bene, e alla conservazione della capacità naturale di un edificio antico di controllare il microclima interno.
