The “Carlo Collodi” kindergarten in Sferracavallo will be restructured, and from September, teaching will be temporarily transferred to an appropriate structure to ensure the continuity of school activities. This was decided by the city council, which approved a political law incorporating the results of the analyzes on the security assessment of the Sferracavallo property.
In the technical report and calculation of the seismic vulnerability, delivered on 7 July 2022 by engineer Marco Sorbelli, we read that “based on the results of the analyzes, it can be concluded that the building is unsuitable for use, as the controls for static loads are not satisfactory and therefore appropriate measures must be taken to allow the building to be used with the minimum levels of safety required by applicable technical standards.
Given that the didactic instructions of the institutes that insist on the field do not currently have sufficient suitable places available in other school complexes, and that the municipality does not have its own facilities available and of sufficient size to host the kindergarten ” Carlo Collodi “On the basis of the Danish Agency for Labor and the Environment’s technical report, two alternative solutions have been identified: finding a suitable property for rent or renting a prefabricated modular structure.
The Executive Board considered the hypothesis of renting a property as a priority and mandated the technical sector to publish an exploratory announcement to acquire the expressions of interest. According to the announcement published d Tuesday, July 12th the property must be located in the villages of Sferracavallo, Bardano or Gabelletta and meet the required technical requirements.
If the building lacks these requirements, the proposals for properties will also be considered approved, for which the property undertakes to carry out the work at its own expense to make the construction complied with in good time so that school activities can start on 14 September 2022. The lease will have a duration of six years, and when the need to host the kindergarten “Carlo Collodi” is over, the Municipal Administration will be able to use the property to temporarily house departments of other schools that will be subject to interventions in the coming years.
“On the school’s security front – says Public Works Councilor Piergiorgio Pizzo – this administration has made important choices since its inception. First of all, you must gradually proceed with the seismic verification of all owned school buildings, which had never been made one of de The first decisions that came out of this work were finally to solve the problems of the kindergarten ‘Carlo Collodi’ and the kindergarten school ‘Il Girotondo’ in Sferracavallo too long aside, and whose critical problems were confirmed by the report we have received in these days.
As part of the NRP, we presented a demolition and reconstruction project worth € 2.3 million, and we await the publication of the rankings. However, other adaptation projects concerning ‘Luigi Barzini’ Primary School in Orvieto, ‘Luca Signorelli’ Middle School in Orvieto, ‘Erminia Frezzolini’ Primary School in Sferracavallo and Primary School were also presented with reference to the NRP regional funds. ‘Seven Martyrs’ by Ciconia “.
“Also for this reason – he concludes – we considered a priority to find a rental property to temporarily transfer the kindergarten ‘Carlo Collodi’. Within a few days we will collect the expressions of interest and we could then proceed with the final solution. Will under in any case, guarantee the regular start of school activities without creating inconvenience to families “.
