This contribute derives from a research, which this Department is developing since five years both at teaching level and at methodology study level.

The diagnostic phase requires the knowledge of all pathologies that can be identified on the analysed building and the existing relations with the main relevant factors, which are involved into the degradation process, in order to reach the possible causes of disease. This study is based on a visual survey of the degradation conditions and it is carried out through the employ of the main classificat
