Project coordinator: ISPC CNR - Institute of Heritage Science of the National Research Council
Project consortium: Università di Tor Vergata Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale
Funding bodies: POR FESR Lazio 2014-2020. Axis I Research and Innovation. Public Notice "Research Group Projects 2020"
Subject areas: Digital Heritage
Budget: € 74.484,90


The project concerns the definition and testing of a methodological pipeline for digital archiving and the 3D use of information relating to elements that are no longer visible or hidden in the structure of the ancient code.

The aim is to document, on a three-dimensional representation, to which the fourth dimension of the depth of the matter is added, elements that increase knowledge, such as e.g. parts of text buried in the binding, the stratigraphy of the miniatures, also characterizing the chemical-physical-biological nature of the materials.

Impacts & Results

Starting from the study and digital acquisition through infrared thermography and reflectography techniques, the project develops solutions  for:

  • multilevel 3D visualization,
  • the creation of a semantic mapping applied to the significant constituent elements,
  • the integration of content and metadata,
  • final use through differentiated communication channels, intended both for specialists in the sector (scientific visualization via webVR platform) and for the public of museums and libraries (holographic showcase designed ad hoc).
