The paper describes the methodology applied to the tallest historic tower in Mantua, the Gabbia Tower, to assess its state of preservation after the earthquakes of May 2012. An extensive investigation programme - including visual inspection, sonic and flat jack tests, operational modal testing and structural modelling - has been planned to support the future preservation actions of the tower. The paper summarizes the information gathered from on-site survey and dynamic tests and describes how these results can be employed and cross-correlated to assess the structural condition and seismic vulnerability of the tower.
