Masonry structures represent the vast majority of World's architectural heritage.Traditional building rules have been almost forgotten, but understanding construction techniques and structural behaviour of historical constructions is a key ingredient for their preservation, restoration and, at the same time, for design purposes.​This International Summer School aims at providing fundamental theoretical and applied tools to analyse Historic Masonry Structures combining engineering, architecture, restoration and history of construction. Join us in the Third Edition of this Summer School in Anagni - Italy!

The event is organized by KEIKO Non-Profit Association with the patronage of the City Council of Anagni.

Teachers are coming from all over Europe and beyond including ETH Zürich and MIT Boston.
