Abstract. This contribution intends to focus attention on the banded vault (‘a fascioni’) that characterizes the atrium of the Capris di Cigliè Palace in Turin, whose construction is dated around 1730 and is attributed to Gian Giacomo Plantery (1680–1756).

The work of survey, analysis, interpretation and digital modeling has been organized in phases (detailed respectively in the next paragraphs) which have allowed us to: study the criteria of architectural-geometric composition at the base of the complex vaulted system that is the object of the present study and to relate them to the most usual operative practices of construction, in particular to the realization and arrangement of the centerings; organize the survey on the basis of the main treatise and manual sources, in order to choose the most appropriate working methods; analyze survey data and set up a parametric model of geometric interpretation; make a comparison between the survey data and the interpretive model.

In particular, the phases of geometric reading and interpretation, parametric modeling and discussion of the results were structured with the aim of studying in detail the different arches that define the structure of the banded vault.
