Abstract

A recent survey carried on the historic complex of Santa Maria del Carrobiolo in Monza (Italy) highlighted that the two sides of the bell-tower are directly supported by the load-bearing walls of the apse and South aisle of the neighboring church. After the discovery of the weak structural arrangement of the building, static and dynamic monitoring systems were installed in the tower to address its preservation. After a brief description of the tower and the results of the preliminary survey, the paper presents selected results of the continuous dynamic monitoring as well as the evidences provided by the static monitoring.
