Three-dimensional digitization - Fondazione Giorgio Cini Onlus

Three-dimensional digitization

October 13, 14, 27, 28; November 2, 4 – 6 online meetings of 2 hour each, from 4.30 to 6.30 pm


The course AOA | Three-dimensional digitization, entirely curated by Factum Foundation, partner of Fondazione Giorgio Cini, will expand and deepen into the concepts and practices of 3D digitization for Cultural Heritage. 

We will present two types of lessons: classes will focus on theoretical aspects and case studies, workshops will demonstrate the application of a particular technology that has been discussed in the previous class.


The course will be held in English; lessons have free acces but registration is required.

Detailed programme:


Class 1: Recording the relief of paintings (Carlos Bayod)

October 13

  • Recording with the Lucida 3D Scanner, Factum and ARCHiVe’s system for digitizing relief. The process of planning, capturing, processing, visualizing, sharing and reproducing the surface of paintings and other low-relief artifacts for conservation purposes. Creating the digital fingerprint of an artwork. 


Workshop 1: The Lucida 3D Scanner (Carlos Bayod, Guendalina Damone)

October 14

Workshop on Lucida 3D Scanner


Class 2: Recording (and reproducing) surface and shape (Carlos Bayod)

October 27

3D and colour recording of an object’s surface and shape employing close-range photogrammetry with complementary 3D scanning methods: reliefs, sculptures, architectural elements, rock art, city and landscape, etc. production of facsimiles through the combination of digital technology and craft skills.


Workshop 2: Close-range photogrammetry (Carlos Bayod, Otto Lowe)

October 28

Workshop on close-range photogrammetry


Class 3: Digital restoration and analysis (Carlos Bayod, Irene Gaume)

November 2

  • – New approaches to higher-resolution surface 3D recording: direct comparison between Lucida, stereo-photometry and 3D profilometry for the inspection and measurement of surface relief;
  • – Surface scanning for research and analysis;
  • – Digital restoration: concepts and methodologies for non-contact conservation.


Workshop 3: Stereo-photometric recording (Carlos Bayod, Jorge Cano)

November 4

Workshop on stereo-photometric recording
