The Po plain hosts one of the highest concentrations of small and medium-size industry in Europe. Production is normally hosted in four typologies of industrial pre-cast buildings, namely (a) one storey buildings made up of a series of parallel portal frames, (b) two single bay, single storey frames linked by perpendicular beams which carry the main roof beams, (c) a similar to type (a) but with truss steel beams substituting the concrete beams, that enable to cover larger spans, and (d) multi-storey structures, characterized by monolithic columns fixed at the base and single span beams with pinned ends. The industrial district comprised between Finale Emilia and Mirandola in Emilia, Italy, is one of the premier European districts for medical technologies production and for the food sector. It has been severely damaged by the earthquake sequence initiated on May 20th 2012, and in particular by the two main shocks of May 20th (Mw 5.9) and May 28th (Mw 5.8). Damage to industrial facilities was extensive, totalling over 13,000 mio €.
