Abstract Prevention and rehabilitation procedures on historical masonries can be successfully accomplished, only if a reliable characterization of masonry constituents' properties has been formerly performed. During recent years several destructive and non-destructive techniques have been implemented for assessing the strength properties of masonry structural components (stones, bricks, mortars). The aim of this work is to demonstrate the cap
