Abstract: Starting from the results obtained in the framework of the LAA Project 2B, we propose a continuation of the R&D on lead/scintillating fibres calorimetry "spaghetti calorimetry"), including further tests on the old calorimeter prototypes and the construction and testing of new prototypes. The main results we pursue concern the performances of a projective calorimeter built with new, cheaper techniques and the radiation hardness of the scintillating fibres; the optimization of a preshower detector system is also studied.
