Fernando Lizzi's Out-Of-Print Micropile Classic Now Available

Staff | September 28, 2010

The International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC) and the International Association for Micropiles are jointly offering Dr. Fernando Lizzi's "Static Restoration of Monuments: Basic Criteria - Case Histories - Strengthening of Buildings Damaged By Earthquakes."

The two organizations have made a special arrangement with the original publisher to republish a high-quality printing of Lizzi's 146-page text, previously out of print.

Lizzi is known internationally as the founder of root piles technology, the system of designing and installing three-dimensional reticulated networks of micropiles that has been used for restoring historical monuments and stabilizing other delicate structures worldwide since 1952.

The book describes and illustrates use of the technique on monuments and other structures around the world.
