Abstract

A multidisciplinary approach based on the integration of in situ geophysical and geological techniques was applied to investigate the Orvieto Cathedral (Umbria Region, Central Italy) and the subsurface. In particular, the electrical resistivity tomography and the horizontal to vertical spectral ratio analysis of single station ambient vibrations measurements were used. This paper reports the results obtained with the joint analysis of the in situ geophysical investigations, geological field survey and borehole data. The joint analysis of different data allowed us (1) to image the geological setting, (2) to highlight some resonance frequencies of the monumental building, and (3) to estimate the resonance frequency of the site.
