[automatically translated] The research developed in the last decade in the building has always been geared more towards those materials, so-called environmentally friendly or eco-friendly, such as to dissipate as little as possible the natural resources. In this sense the wood, and in particular the lamellar, has become a viable alternative to the more usual and traditional technologies of reinforced concrete and iron, also because it represents one of the few renewable raw materials. The laminated wood is an evolved product, an industrial product which exceeds its defects of solid wood with characteristics of mechanical strength and superior durability, so as to obtain any shape and size. however, it presents a limited rigidity compared to other technologies, the latter aspect, which resulted in a vast field of research based on the possibility of inserting stiffening elements within the resistant section. The paper presents the results achieved in the context of a draft PIA innovation that has had the objective to test an innovative product that can have a higher rigidity and therefore more performance at the same cost. The use of original materials required performance verification testing through integrated cyclical testing of mechanical and accelerated aging resistance were conducted, respectively, by the Department of Structural and Geotechnical Engineering and the Department of Design and Construction Construction of both ' University of Palermo.
