Abstract: The mitigation of seismic vulnerability related to both cultural and historical buildings is a very important issue especially when considering monumental heritages located on seismic areas, since it allows defining the seismic risk of selected structures. Within such a framework, Non Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques and proximal remotely sensed tools play a key role for providing the damage detection and the conservation status evaluation of heritages, especially in response to seismic hazards. Based on this rationale, the proposed study aims at providing a methodology relevant to the integrated use of Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS), Infrared Thermal Camera (IR-TC) and Real Aperture Radar (RAR) sensors for both the structural health monitoring and the seismic risk mitigation of monumental heritages. Some preliminary results, gathered for the Brettii & Enotri Museum in Cosenza and the San Nicola Church in Briatico, are properly described to show the benefits of both the proposed approach and the powerful capabilities of proximal remote sensing tools to support classical measurement techniques for the monumental heritages monitoring in a seismic area. Furthermore, some future perspectives are summarized in order to integrate and improve the results of the structural analyses.
