The representation of architectural heritage: a process of knowledge-sharing between history and virtual reconstruction

Mariapaola Vozzola


The revolution in the communication and sharing of documentation that is sweeping through the fields of study related to cultural, architectural and archaeological heritage is taking shape in the formulation of innovative procedures, aimed at optimising and improving the communication and dissemination of knowledge through the use of 3D representation systems, through the creation of navigable models that can be measured and interrogated at the same time, and thanks to careful management of data and metadata related to the asset. Nowadays, the ways of preserving and disseminating memory, of sharing and communicating knowledge of the heritage are changing considerably, becoming integrated and shared documentation, no longer exclusive to certain fields or confined within isolated disciplinary areas. From the presentation of a review of some national and international projects, different solutions will be analysed for the study, representation and digitisation of Architectural and Cultural Heritage through the use of virtual models related to virtual reconstruction, to identify streamlined, applicable and replicable solutions on a large scale where the protagonists of the scene are both the artefact model and the data used for virtual reconstruction. The main objective of the proposed research is to promote collaboration between different disciplines and technologies, to have a shared environment, which contains digital models of the existing cultural heritage, available to scholars, professionals and the curious, where it is possible to represent the history of the property.
