MED ART 2
NEW METHODS FOR SEISMIC REINFORCEMENT AND REHABILITATION
PROCEDURES, TECHNIQUES AND GUIDELINES
Med Art2, a project aimed at internationalizing businesses working in the field of engineering, construction and antiseismic reconstruction businesses in Turkey, is the natural continuation of the cooperation started between VGM and Assorestauro in the area of the restoration of cultural heritage first with the project Med Art “Transnational Cooperation for Cultural Heritage Preservation” (2012- 2013) and then with Med Art Follow Up (2013-2014), aimed at executing the restoration of Sheik Suleyman Mosque in Istanbul.
Sponsored by Regione Emilia Romagna, with Assorestauro acting as the executing body, Med Art2 too sees the collaboration of Società Roncucci&Partners (Bologna), a business specializing in supporting businesses during the whole internationalization process.
The project is focused on the consolidation and antiseismic reinforcement of historic buildings and encompasses promotional activities for the Italian companies in Turkey and workshops in Italy. In detail, the main issues of the project are as follows:
- promotion and commercial follow up in Turkey (October 2013 to May 2015)
- workshop and conferences in Italy (October 2015)
- Turkish translation of the Guidelines for the assessment and mitigation of seismic risk in cultural heritage
- final conference in Istanbul (September 2016)
