Quantum mechanics presents peculiar properties that, on the one hand, have been the subject of several theoretical and experimental studies about its very foundations and, on the other hand, provide tools for developing new technologies, the so-called quantum technologies. The nonclassicality pointed out by Leggett-Garg inequalities has represented, with Bell inequalities, one of the most investigated subjects. In this article we study the connection of Leggett-Garg inequalities with a new emerging field of quantum measurement, the weak values in the case of a series of sequential measurements on a single object. In detail, we perform an experimental study of the four-time-correlator Leggett-Garg test, by exploiting single and sequential weak measurements performed on heralded single photons.
