The research carried out within the project “Improving the seismic resistance of cultural heritage
buildings” (contract ALA/95/23/2003/077-122), funded by the EU-India Cross-Cultural Programme, has
included experimental and analytical study of four historical constructions of prime importance in
Europe and India, namely Monastery of Jerónimos in Lisbon, Cathedral of Majorca, Cathedral of
Reggio Emilia and Qutb Minar in New Delhi. The Project has lead to the proposal of a set of possible
interventions oriented to preserve or upgrade the seismic response of such buildings.
