The equestrian monument of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (II century A.D.) is experimentally examined. The strain fields and the displacements of the statue of the horse, determined by the load of the emperor statue, are recorded. The experimental values point out that the localization of the contact areas can significantly influence the behavior of the monument. By comparing the experimental results with the numerical ones, a satisfactory agreement emerges.
