In this paper, a review of the main ground-penetrating radar (GPR) applications, technologies, and methodologies used in Italy is given. The discussion has been organized in accordance with the field of application, and the use of this technology has been contextualized with cultural and territorial peculiarities, as well as with social, economic, and infrastructure requirements, which make the Italian territory a comprehensive large-scale study case to analyze. First, an overview on the use of GPR worldwide compared to its usage in Italy over the history is provided. Subsequently, the state of the art about the main GPR activities in Italy is deepened and divided according to the field of application. Notwithstanding a slight delay in delivering recognized literature studies with respect to other forefront countries, it has been shown how the Italian contribution is now aligned with the highest world standards of research and innovation in the field of GPR. Finally, possible research perspectives on the usage of GPR in Italy are briefly discussed.
