All of us are aware that field experience is fundamental to cement the knowledges acquired during every training.
As a consequence, we are delighted to offer to our course’s participants an amazing selection of interesting field trips in Central Italy. The first field trip in Rome (Colosseum area and Imperial Forum) will be organized just before the start of the main course and it will be the occasion to welcome the course’s participants in an icebreaker party.
The other field trip will be organised on the last day of the ICGSM and will represent an amazing occasion to explore a field laboratory where monitoring systems are studied, tested and improved.

FIELD TRIP: COLOSSEUM AND IMPERIAL FORUMS (ROME)
2nd MAY 2023
MONITORING THE SAFEGUARD OF ANCIENT MONUMENTS
This exclusive field trip will provide the participants with access to one of the most visited monuments in the world (about 7 M visitors in 2022): the Colosseum, whose construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD. The monument is the largest existing Roman amphitheatre: it could contain more than 50000 spectators.
During the field trip, the participants will have the opportunity to see first-hand the environmental and structural monitoring system realized for this huge monument. The monitoring system is meant to collect information regarding the environment (temperature, wind and groundwater), static and dynamic response of the structure to external actions in order to assess how much the structure is affected by natural events such as earthquakes, wind, humidity, temperature as well by the construction of the new metro line whose tunnel are excavated few meters from its foundations. Participants will observe the installed instruments – strain gauges, clinometers, accelerometers, piezometers and weather stations – and will be briefed on the system characteristics and the structural behaviour as per data analysis.
To secure your spot for this unique experience, register you at the field trip here:
ATTENTION the spots are limited, and only the first ones will have access to the Colosseum entrance as part of the field trip!
FIELD TRIP: ACUTO FIELD LABORATORY (FR)
6th MAY 2023
The field trip will be dedicated to visit the Acuto Field Laboratory (central Italy) located in an abandoned quarry and managed since 2016 by the CERI Research Centre for Geological Risks and the Earth Sciences Department of “Sapienza” University of Rome. In the Acuto Field Laboratory, a multi-parametric monitoring system, including environmental, geotechnical, geophysical, and remote sensing devices, is devoted to evaluating the influence of external stressors on short- to long-term stability of the intensely jointed rock wall and to detecting precursors of rock failure by means of microacustic and microseismic sensors. The detection of permanent changes in physical and mechanical parameters represents an important target to mitigate the related landslide risk as it can potentially lead rock masses to failure, especially when infrastructures are involved.
We are working for you to have an unforgettable experience at the 9th International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring.

Further updates will be available very soon. Stay tuned!
