Seismic isolation is one of the most relevant topic in research area and it counts different branches and approaches. During the time, different devices have been designed and plenty of experiments have been conducted as well as several attempts have already been put in place in real constructions. Among new experimental proposals, isolation systems based on the concept of Seismic Metamaterial reveal to be very promising, getting increasingly attention from the scientific community. In this thesis, two different approaches of seismic isolation systems based on the concept of Metamaterials are discussed: systems embedded with the ground and systems tuned with structures. For both systems, the working principles are presented and remarks are expressed in the light of the results coming from field investigations and experimental tests carried out about the two methods.
