Abstract

The goal is to analyze reinforcement actions of some Neapolitan domes. At first some technical reports were critically interpreted. The engineers were called to express their opinion on the origin of the damages and to propose actions to be taken. Those conflicting opinions give rise to technical solutions completely different, whose validity will be analyzed in the light both of the development of the static theories on the vaulted buildings and of the instruments furnished by treatises of the time. Aim of the analysis is the comprehension of the domes structural behaviour, so as imagined by architects of the XVIII century.
