Abstract. In this paper we propose an integrated approach to diagnostic prospecting applied to the cathedral of Matera, in Southern Italy. In particular, we have performed both an ultrasonic tomography and a high frequency GPR prospecting on some pillars of the Church to investigate about possible structural yielding and a GPR prospecting at lower frequencies on the floor, where also a linear inversion algorithm has been applied to the data.
