The paper presents results of the analysis of the lateral-load response of an existing RC structure seismically upgraded by means of C-FRP. The structure was tested “as-is” under monotonic lateral loading conditions. It failed by a column-type collapse mechanism. The structure was repaired and upgraded by means of C-FRP. The structure has been tested again by a cyclic load test. Results demonstrate the successful implementation of C-FRP with a significant improvement of stiffness, strength and lateral displacement capacity of the upgraded structure. Finally a numerical study has been started with the aim to correctly capture the experimental results.
