Project
Research undertaken since 2005 with the survey and documentation of the main hermit complexes of Tuscany such as Monte Senario, Vallombrosa, Camaldoli and La Verna (in progress) and continued with the documentation of complex hermitages in Pavia with the Hermitage of Sant’Alberto di Butrio .The documentation of the Certosa di Pavia and the Certosa del Galluzzo, started in 2014 and still in progress, is aimed at compiling a database of the two monumental complexes to extrapolate a cognitive framework for the whole complex and for the individual cells, in order to to define informative models useful for the enhancement and management of these complexes.
Project
Analysis and survey systems for the study of military architectures with particular interest for modern military architecture, designed by Antonelli in the basin of Central America and North Africa. The research concerns the comparison of the typological characteristics of the fortified architecture, the study of the geometries that characterize the relationship between investigation and project in the definition of the defensive system and the production of dissemination systems for the promotion of monumental complexes.
Project
The Constantinian mosaics of the Nativity Church in Bethlehem constitute one of the most important mosaic heritage in the world. Parallel to the restoration and unveiling of the mosaic, under the current level of walk of the church, the laboratory is developing drawing and survey techniques to optimize documentation practices for mosaic complexes, by the evaluation of automation processes and by analyzing the critical aspects of the interpretative process, that are functional to the redrawing of the ornamental apparatus.
