Le tecnologie digitali per la visualizzazione e la valorizzazione dei beni culturali

In collaborazione con il DADU – Università di Sassari

L’elaborazione digitale delle immagini, la computer grafica, le tecniche di realtà virtuale e realtà aumentata, si mettono oggi a disposizione del patrimonio culturale, e grazie alla grande diffusione dei dispositivi portatili collegati in rete consentono nuove modalità per supportare la visita a città storiche, siti archeologici e monumenti, aprendo la strada a nuove forme di valorizzazione turistica dei territori, di esperienza e promozione dei beni culturali.

Questo nuovo campo di applicazione abbraccia varie discipline e competenze: quelle tecniche, per sfruttare al meglio le possibilità di innovazione, quelle della ricerca culturale, per garantire l’accuratezza delle informazioni, quelle legate alla presentazione e alla messa in scena, per avvicinare il messaggio culturale al pubblico.

A conclusione del workshop internazionale Virtual Cityscapes Videomapping for Cultural Heritage destinato a studenti ed esperti del settore in programma dal 18 al 25 settembre, una giornata di studio sulle tecniche innovative per la valorizzazione dei beni culturali che raccoglie ad Alghero una selezione di gruppi di ricerca internazionali. L’obiettivo è fare il punto sulla situazione, presentando approcci, tecnologie e soluzioni progettuali in questo nuovo settore, e riflettendo sulle modalità per unire innovazione tecnologica, divulgazione culturale e turismo.

Reusing 3D surveys of Cultural Heritage for virtual tourism applications

Documenting Cultural Heritage with digital technologies is nowadays a well established practice in many different domains, ranging from the technical documentation for restoration, 3D modeling for archival purposes, digital acquisition for scientific studies, or 3D representation for virtual and interactive applications. Different aims lead generally to different and specific digitization projects, and often different initiatives do not interact each other.

Recently the Computer Vision and Reverse Engineering Lab at Politecnico di Milano has contributed with 500+ digitizations, to the massive 3D acquisition of two museums in Milan, in the framework of the European project 3D-ICONS (http://3dicons-project.eu/).

3D-ICONS brings together partners from across Europe with the relevant expertise to 3D digitize architectural and archaeological monuments and objects identified by UNESCO as being of outstanding cultural importance. The project has contributed content to the EUROPEANA portal, increasing the critical mass of engaging 3D content available to EUROPEANA’s users.

Recent sub-projects demonstrates how the proper reuse of this large dataset can greatly help in generating significant and cost-effective virtual applications starting from materials originated with a completely different purpose. Starting from this example the talk will discuss the general problem of creating virtual applications by using as much as possible existing resources, and the various connected scenarios.

Gabriele Guidi is Associate Professor of Reverse Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Italy). He received his M.S. degree in Electronic Engineering in 1988 and Ph.D. in 1992 from the Universities of Florence and Bologna respectively. He started his researches working on ultrasound equipment for biomedical imaging and from 1999 he began to explore 3D imaging technologies applied to Cultural Heritage under the supervision of Jean Angelo Beraldin, leading the digitization of important artworks from Donatello and Leonardo da Vinci. He coordinated the 3D scanning and mesh processing activity within the Rome Reborn project directed by Bernard Frischer, that led to new digital model of ancient Rome. In the last ten years he has directed the digitization of archaeological sites in Italy and abroad, including whole museums and their contents. He is also involved in 3D metrology, equipment characterization and definition of 3D standards.

He has been contributing to the scientific committees of several international conferences; he chaired VSMM2012, contributed as Program and Paper Chair to Digital Heritage 2013 and is now International Program Co-Chair of Digital Heritage 2015.

Gabriele Guidi is Senior Member of the IEEE and serves as reviewer of several ISI international journals in the 3D imaging field.
