Seismic isotropic and anisotropic investigation of structures of cultural heritage (The case of Antonino and Faustina Temple in Rome and San John's Baptistery in Florence).
A geophysical study of the Scarsella vault the high altar of St. John's Baptistery in Florence was conducted to verify if fractures exist on the internal surface and to define the structural features of the vault, 3D inversion of seismic tomography was carried out, leading to a more detailed knowledge of the vault's internal structure. The second study describes the results of seismic refraction and transmission tomography to investigate three columns of the Pronaos of Antonino and Faustina temple in Rome, the columns are of cipollino marble. The comparison between the two techniques suggests the anisotropic characteristics of the marble.
