Introduction
I'm currently a PhD student in Earth Science at Università degli Studi di Milano. My PhD research is focusing on the integration of early warning practices with deep thermal imaging for the preventive conservation of cultural and environmental heritage.

Article
Digital close-range photogrammetry allows to acquire high-fidelity tridimensional models useful to document cultural heritage objects with an impressive level of detail. In addition, this technique carries a strong analytical potentiality, able to gain improved knowledge of cultural objects and their preservation conditions. This project is focused...
Article
The paper reports the results obtained from the digital survey of Giottesque frescoes in the Archiepiscopal Palace of Milan. Multispectral Imaging and Image Based Modelling techniques have allowed the study, the high-resolution documentation and the virtual reassembly of the fragmented frescoes: the integration of spectral data with RGB ortho-image...
Article
Reflectographic analyses applied on paintings can be performed using cameras equipped with different detectors with different abilities in detecting and visualizing underdrawings, repainting, restorations, and other nonvisible information. In this research, the results obtained through thermographic imaging followed by statistical imaging postproce...
Article
The present work introduces the preliminary outcome of one of the tasks inside the MOBARTECH project, that is the creation of the prototype for a compact FORS spectrophotometer capable of automatically identifying pigments and dyes. On the road toward this goal, we focused on the automation of pigment identification, as aspect of great interest whi...
Article
The recent conservative project of the imposing panel painting The Martyrdom of St. Catherine painted by Gaudenzio Ferrari (c.1477–1546) has been a precious opportunity to deepen the scientific knowledge about the execution technique—hitherto scarcely investigated—of one of the prominent exponents of the Lombard and Piemontese Renaissance. The cons...
Article
Monitoring surface moisture content (MC)is a required activity and a topic of current interest in conservation studies. The present work examines the possibility of using the spectral reflectance factor at 970 nm (Rλ970) for the noninvasive quantitative determination of surface MC in building materials. Indeed, the quantification of surface liquid...
Article
Pulsed thermography was exploited to identify the presence of glass defects in order to get an indication of the conservation status of archaeological glass. Indeed, the process of degradation in artifacts subjected to centuries of burial can be of great relevance. More specifically, we evaluated the potential of pulsed thermography to map the pres...
Article
The process of degradation of archaeological glass subjected to centuries of burial can be of great relevance: typical consequence of degradation in the original vitreous material is rainbow-like iridescence due to chemical alteration of surface layers, salts formation and ion migration. The research presented in this paper is focused on the study...
Article
A promising approach in oncology consists in combining Radiation Therapy (RT) with Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia (MFH). Modern day RT takes advantage by imaging techniques able to provide information about the correct patient set-up, target position and movement during the treatments. For these purposes, gold fiducial markers, implanted into the tumo...

The process of degradation in artefacts subjected to centuries of burial can be of great relevance above all in archaeological glass. Infrared thermography is a non-destructive method allowing to map the defects of the glass substrate, both produced during its manufacturing (e.g., bubbles and inclusions) and due to ageing. This research is focused...
Conference Paper
Color rendering is defined as the "effect of an illuminant on the color appearance of objects by conscious or subconscious comparison with their color appearance under a reference illuminant" [1]. A Color Rendering Index (CRI) aims to indicate through one or more values the range of the color variation of an object after changes in the illumination...
Article
In the recent years electro-osmosis drying devices applied to walls in both modern and historic masonry has become one of the leading innovative techniques to prevent damages caused by capillary rising water in building materials. Since the scientific community is raising many doubts on these techniques, the authors aim to propose a fast, simple, n...
