This study proposes an analysis of the anti-seismic buildings patents granted in the first 50 years after the unification of Italy. The purpose is to expand and systematize the comprehensive knowledge framework in this particular field through the technological scenario reconstruction, referring to the patents for the anti-seismic residences. This particular field has been chosen because of the will to trace back, within a specific time span of the recent past, any potential technological precursors of the most common construction solutions in the Twentieth century. Among the identified solutions, albeit there are few of them, it is possible to trace back isolation systems, metal frame structures and reinforced masonry systems.
