Historical structures are a resource and a fundamental part of the cultural heritage all over the world. Maintenance of it is an important issue as well as the repair after environmental injuries, such as earthquakes. This chapter is focused on the specific aspects of vibration testing and the robustness of technological tools, sensing design and computational methods with particular reference to the monitoring of structures in which the mechanical behaviour uncertainties are a typical intrinsic character, as in the case of monumental buildings. The case study of the Holy Shroud Chapel in Turin (Italy) is reported as a validation of the monitoring techniques used at present in ancient buildings. © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
