This document describes the rehabilitation of the Trignano S. Giorgio Church Bell-Tower (S. Martino in Rio, Reggio Emilia, Italy), in the framework of the three-years ISTECH Project activities (Development of Innovative Techniques for the Improvement of Stability of Cultural Heritage in Particular Seismic Protection), funded by the European Commission in 1996. The Bell-Tower was seriously damaged by the earthquake of October 15th 1996, which principally struck the Reggio Emilia and Modena Districts in Emilia-Romagna Region (Italy) and a rehabilitation was necessary. The intervention on the Bell-Tower applies innovative antiseismic techniques in order to fulfil the project objectives: strengthening and restoring Cultural Heritage Structures, especially masonry buildings, by the use of superelastic Shape Memory Alloy Devices.
