This paper represents a continuation of a review on the seismic safety assessment of historical structures using some selected integrated investigation activities. In the first part of this review the dynamic investigation was presented.

Assessment of seismic safety of historical structures is a challenging task because the information available about the assessed structure is usually limited. Therefore, it is often necessary to exploit a number of integrated investigation activities to increase the level of knowledge about the historical structure under consideration. Thus, in the case of any need for providing the structure with strengthening intervention, this intervention will be a minimal and any unnecessary…
