The drawing of Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli. Extensive survey for heritage documentation

Stefano Bertocci, Sandro Parrinello




 The documentation project for the digital representation of Hadrian’s Villa represents a multi-year survey program promoted by Joint Laboratory University and Enterprise “Landscape Survey & Design” with the aim of providing to the Superintendence a three-dimensional database of Villa’s rooms, capable to describe the state of places. Hadrian’s Villa represents the highest expression of imperial architecture, combining spaces linked both to political needs and to recreational and leisure activities in a complex with urban articulation immersed in the harmony of a landscape where nature permeates the structures with pools, water games and visual cones that open up to Rome. The documentation and survey activities of the ruins, have produced today a partial database of the Villa made up of high density point clouds from which 3D models are processed to study morphological systems, construction details and walls.
