This paper presents a synthesis of the results obtained at the ELSA laboratory from tests on models of historical constructions under earthquake loading. Laboratory tests on large-scale replicas of monumental structures or parts of them were carried out. Assessment of the efficiency of strengthening solutions and relevance for the calibration and/or development of non-linear numerical models is highlighted. A short summary of the ongoing ELSA activities in the field is given.
