This paper summarizes the main features of the seismic retrofitting project of a school building located in Montella (AV), Italy. Specifically, it describes the as-built status in terms of structural organization, member detailing, and existing materials properties. Then, it outlines the main assumptions and results obtained from seismic analysis, of both as-built and retrofitted structure. Comments about the construction stage are also reported by describing the main operations put in place with the aim to realize the shear wall system, which is the main retrofitting intervention, and some local strengthening measures consisting in steel plating and jacketing of some underdesigned RC members. Some emphasis is placed on the realization of micro-piles and extra foundations of the aforementioned shear walls. Besides its specific interest, the reported project may be intended as representative of a wide class of seismic assessment and retrofitting projects that have been realized in Italy in the last decade.
