In this paper results of dynamic tests performed on a bell tower located in Ficarolo (Italy) are reported. After the Emilia earthquake that occurred in 2012, the bell tower reported a serious damage pattern and, as a consequence, retrofitting interventions were carried out. Dynamic tests before and after the strengthening were performed to investigate the modal properties of the bell tower and to evaluate possible changes in dynamic behavior due to the intervention. Accelerations during ambient vibrations were recorded by means of an advanced MEMS-based system, whose main features are the transmission of the data in digital form and the possibility of performing some system analyses directly on-board of the sensors. Accelerations were acquired using 11 biaxial MEMS units. First 8 modes are clearly identified, with natural frequencies in the range 0.5-9.0 Hz. Finally, a comparison between the performances of the installed MEMS-based system and a traditional analog (piezoelectric) system is carried out and results are critically compared.
