Abstract

Sant'Apollinare Fortress in Perugia (Italy) represents an ancient and precious architecture which may be considered as a prototype of off-shore historical building complexes in Europe. For this reason, it has been selected as open case study hosting Biomass Research Centre of CIRIAF (University of Perugia) and at the same time Circular Economy labs and test facilities. In particular, the stable building, constructed on the 17th-18th century hosts a trigeneration plant integrated to a biogas plant supported by local biomasses (vegetal oil) and occupants' waste. After the structural health design and retrofit, an energy retrofit was designed and implemented by using local and recycled materials, also suitable for application in historical buildings, according to local regulations. Then the whole intervention has been certified by means of the GBC HB protocol, a LEED-consistent protocol developed in Italy for being applied specifically to historical buildings. Currently the building hosts offices and labs and it is open for several technical visits and events about energy efficiency and circular economy and it is also the case study of a further innovation project supported by European Commission under the framework of Horizon 2020 program.
