The Summer School on Historic Masonry Structures is designed to bring together researchers and scholars from the different fields of structural masonry, construction history and restoration to share their experiences on the history, design rules, construction methods and assessment tools of historic masonry structures, including vaults, domes and shells.

Teaching will be in English, and it will include three main parts: course work, field-work and technical trips.
The learning programme is based on a variety of didactic approaches including lectures, research presentations by students, field-work and field trips. Being designed to last for twelve days, the course work will play the main role during the summer school. Furthermore a round-table talk will be carried out at halftime of the summer school. At the end of the programme the results of the field-work campaign will be presented by the students.

This program is intended for graduate and PhD students or practitioners planning to be, or already involved into building conservation and restoration, architecture history, structural design, seismic assessment, management of cultural heritage, and history of construction.
