Paper Title:
The Seismic Assessment of the Curia in the Roman Forum through Simplified Models
  Abstract

The knowledge of historical buildings represents the necessary condition for obtaining a reliable evaluation (even if simplified) of their structural safety, especially in relation to the seismic assessment. In the case of archeological finds, the knowledge of the building modifications, due to anthropic or natural events, assumes a particular importance. The Curia, placed in the archaeological site of the Roman Forum in Rome, represents, under this point of view, an emblematic case. The several transformations suffered by the building during the centuries determine the need of a seismic evaluation able to take into account the different structural conformations and the different boundary conditions.
