In this work, we will describe the application of the Extended Matrix Framework (EMF) to the 3D reconstruction of the temple on the Roman forum of Nora. EMF represents a specific section of the Extended Matrix (EM) method, developed by the VHLab of the CNR ISPC (Rome), dedicated to the development of software solutions for 3D data management in the...

The hypogea of the Punic necropolis of Nora represented a testing ground for the use of photogrammetry as an archaeological survey tool in a highly critical context, both from the point of view of the survey itself and from the point of view of the understanding and dissemination of the underground evidence. The study describes the acquisition tech...

The Swat valley (Pakistan) has always been considered an important center of Gandhara art. Due to the unfavourable conditions, this artistic phenomenon has long been almost ignored or underestimated, but its documentation is essential for study the symbolism of the figures, their spatial organization, their stylistic variation and their conservativ...
Article
ABSTRACT - In the past it was customary to use coins as pendants, simply by piercing them or by adopting more complex solutions to transform them into devotional or decorative objects; in modern and contemporary times this practice has returned thanks sometimes to the use of more advanced techniques, such as brazing a peg or a ring on the edge of t...

This paper focuses on a GIS-based spatial analysis dealing with the Roman-Byzantine routes of central Cappadocia, Turkey. Taking into consideration the various typologies of settlements and their distribution within that region, we approached the issue from an operational research perspective. The spatial analysis started from a meta-heuristic algo...
Article
Full-text available
In Cappadocia (central Turkey), routes that were only of a secondary importance during the Roman age acquired a new relevance starting from the end of the 7th century. In this framework, to what extent did the archaeological evidence match the picture recalled by the written sources? To address this question, the relationship between movement and v...

Conference Paper
Traditional survey techniques are, very often, “not enough” to analyse and enhance epigraphical finds when bad state of preservation, incision on irregular surface, dimension and shape, arrangement in museum are important factors that must be taken in account. The innovative approach exploit widespread of mobile devices and it integrates 3D texture...
