“Prevenzione antincendio per il patrimonio archivistico e bibliotecario: criticità e soluzioni” (Fire Prevention for the archival heritage and libraries: problems and solutions)
On April 11th, 2017 took place at the Institute Fire Prevention seminar "Fire Prevention for the archival heritage and libraries: problems and solutions", organized within the European project STORM, whose CNVVF is a partner. The meeting was opened by the Managing Director for the prevention and technical safety, ing. Tolomeo Litterio that emphasizing the role of the protection of archives and library materials for the defense of the culture and identity of a community, recalled the contribution of CNVVF in preventing fires and numerous relief activities that, over the years, have allowed to rescue historical and cultural heritage. After the greetings of the President of the Architects of Rome, Arch. Alessandro Ridolfi, and the President of SOS Archives, Drs. Massimo Cruciotti, which together with CNVVF oversaw the organization of the meeting, they discussed the different aspects relating to fire protection of archives and libraries. In particular, the Ing. Luca Nassi (CNVVF) has outlined the most important aspects of risk analysis in the historical buildings and the responses adopted by the special laws in Italy and abroad. The various branches of the security technologies of the archives were presented by Ing. Piergiacomo Cancelliere (CNVVF), by Dr. Goretti (SOS Archives), Eng Nicola Clemeno (APPI) and and Eng. Marco Pasquini (SOS Archives), while the needs of security officers were exposed by Dr. Monica Calzolari and Maria Elena Marinelli Dott.sa of MiBACT. The particular complexity of electrical hazard and the rules governing the installation and management of the installations was finally treated Eng. Michele Mazzaro CNVVF. The closing of the meeting was devoted from Dr. Eng. Stefano Marsella to a brief presentation to the implications that the protection of property from the effects of climate change could have on the archival heritage against fire protection standards. The technical measures necessary to maintain the most suitable environmental characteristics to the preservation of cultural heritage are in fact the subject of the research project STORM, which is aimed at identifying measures to limit the damage to the cultural heritage caused by climate change.
