Three-dimensional digitization

plus Oct, 13Nov, 18 2021

2021 October 13, 14, 27, 28; November 4, 18 – 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. 

Two types of lessons are presented: classes focusing on theoretical aspects and case studies, workshops demonstrating the application of a particular technology that has been discussed in the previous class.


The course has come to an end but you can find the recordings of all lessons on the YouTube channel of Fondazione Giorgio Cini (here the link to the dedicated playlist).

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
