Abstract

The paper illustrates one of the most popular techniques for the refurbishment and upgrading of existing building envelopes in Italy, in order to fulfill new energy efficiency standards. The use of a ventilated façade is becoming increasingly common in the refurbishment and upgrading of multi- storey building envelopes. This technical solution, superimposed on the existing façade, can solve a multitude of technical problems by improving thermal and acoustic insulation and protecting from moisture and atmospheric agents. Furthermore, the recent development of high-performance claddings offers a wide range of opportunities for upgrading the image of the building to meet new architectural requirements.
