General description

"Surviving the aggressions: designing the Super Building in Sicily" is the BEST way to learn more about construction materials.

During the event you will attend the laboratories of "concrete and monitoring techniques" and "building diagnostic" and everything will be under the sunny sky of Sicily, you can learn how to see and how to check damage in building.

After course you will have basic knowledge about how to design a real "Super Building", strong against materials aggressions and dynamic against earthquake movements.

Do you want to have a great preparation concerned with materials field and construction?

Join us in this beautiful course and don't miss the chance to visit our beautiful land surrounded by the beautiful hot Mediterranean sea, walking through the ancient and charming streets of Taormina, climbing the Etna Volcano, trying our "imbuto" and "limoncello", eating a delicious "gelato", drinking the BEST "espresso", burning under Sicilian sun.

As you can read it will be the BEST hot Autumn Course of the year and you have so many reasons why you should come to HOT Sicily.
