The paper presents the experimental results of the evaluation of fitness for use of chemical anchoring systems used in the strengthening of historical masonry buildings. The research refers to a feasible operation of reconstruction of orientations to be performed within pre-existent vertical structures consisting of load-bearing masonry facings. To properly frame the issue related to the fixing between masonry facings and floor elements of the reference model, the mechanical characteristics of the base materials constituting the system were determined beforehand having been determined in terms of compressive and extraction strength. The evaluation of the results obtained from the materials used was followed by an experimentation with load tests on wall-floor connections realised with chemical anchors showing a good capacity of transferring loads assessed in terms of moment and absorbed shear. The obtained information allows to consider the restoration operations developed with the above technique as fit for the specific purpose.
