Designed for use by all professionals involved or interested in the preservation of monuments, the purpose of this book is to contribute to the development of new approaches in the area. Many of the examples examined, including the Colosseum, the Tower of Pisa and the Pyramid of Chephren, are the result of work carried out during Giorgio Croci's distinguished career. Featuring numerous black and white photographs and illustrations by the author, the text is divided into two main sections entitled The Scientific Approach to the Study of Architectural Heritage and Structural Analysis of Masonry Buildings.
