Italian researchers have certainly provided important contributions to the field of Experimental Mechanics (EM). The pioneering work on analysis of failure mechanisms with strain gages and optical interferometry techniques are nowadays still cited. Over the years, Italian experts of EM proposed innovative approaches thus improving procedures and tools in the EM field. In view of this, the present paper reviews the current state of Experimental Mechanics in Italy with particular attention to issues such as optical and thermal NDT, characterization of material behavior and properties, monitoring and preservation of art wells, industrial applications, biomechanics and biomedical engineering. As is clear, the present review does not pretend to cover the whole spectrum of EM applications in Italy. However, the authors aim to provide basic information on the most important research lines and to address readers to the Italian centers/groups specialized in each particular field.
