Abstract

Portico Varano in the Ducal Palace of Camerino (Italy) is a renaissance monumental quadriporticus that was damaged by the 2016 Central Italy seismic sequence. Within the field activities for saving cultural heritage foreseen within a recent European research project named ARCH, a long-term monitoring system, comprising different types of sensors, such as accelerometers, displacement transducers, environmental sensors, and a weather station, was set up to achieve comprehensive measures of its operational behaviour and the evolution of the damage. The monitoring system, installed in October 2020, is currently operating, providing valuable information on the experimentally observed dynamic behaviour, also considering changes in the environmental conditions. Starting from the results of the dynamic characterization of the structure and after the optimization of the position of the sensors, this paper shows and discusses the efforts made to track over time the modal characteristics of the Portico Varano in order to detect changes in its conditions. In addition, a procedure has been proposed and implemented combining information available from Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) to identify recorded data related to seismic events relevant to operational conditions.
