Abstract

In the period between the two world wars the construction and urban expansion of the city of Salerno constituted the opportunity for the transition from traditional masonry buildings to reinforced concrete structure, through countless intermediate technology solutions with the use of mixed and sometimes particularly original techniques. Camillo Guerra, head of the municipal engineer from 1928 to 1934, was one of the protagonists of this productive period and the construction of the City Hall, entrusted to him, is particularly emblematic for the choices related to the construction techniques and materials. The result is a building with a complex technological interpretation, where the masonry is integrated with concrete beams, iron, bricks of various types, slab ribbed floor, sometimes with elements in glass block which at the time were considered to be particularly innovative. Re-reading through the documents of the history of the building of the Town Hall is, therefore, particularly interesting: discover what lies beneath the "skin" of the various "members" of the building is, in fact, almost like leafing through a manual from the real technical architecture of the thirties of last century.
