The castle of Reggio Calabria represented in antiquity an important reference in the defensive system of fortified urban center because it had the purpose of protect the entire city as well as the port and all of southern Calabria. The military fortress was able to preserve its original aspect although it has undergone several restorations over time aimed at making the structure suitable for defense against external attacks. Today it is home of the observatory of the National Institute of Geophysics, and became also an important historical and cultural site of reference of the city, often used for cultural events. To systematize organically the available documentation concerning the Castle, it has been prepared a specific diagnostic plan consisting of a first phase of pre-diagnosis dedicated to the examination of the context, which was followed by the phase of diagnosis with a specific investigation concerning historical and architectural aspects and the constituent materials as well as the state of conservation of the monument. It was finally defined the phase of post diagnosis that, to complete the procedural process and next to the first two phases, it aims to define the actions to be carried out to determine the correct restoration and enhancement.
