This dissertation deals with the application of the methodology of preservation on historic concrete
constructions. The early concrete structure will be analysed from several points of view: artistic or
architectonic value, construction history, structural behaviour, procedures historically followed for the
design, on-site and laboratory testing of constitutive materials, modelling and seismic analyses.
The past industrial building in Marghera is taken as a case study here. It was built in the 50s and is going
through the conversion into the commercial and business complex.
