The talk brings updates on the project of recording the entire Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, headquarters of ARCHiVe, and the collections preserved at Fondazione Giorgio Cini.

Carlos Bayod Lucini, project director at Factum Foundation, explains in depth the 3D digitisation of the Teatro Verde and the Vatican Chapels recorded with LiDAR and Photogrammetry.

The Teatro Verde in the woods of Fondazione Giorgio Cini is an open-air theater designed by Luigi Vietti in the 50s and commissioned by Vittorio Cini . The site is currently under restoration and its 3D recording conducted by Factum in 2022 is part of the project to reopen the theatre to the public in collaboration with Cartier. The talk intends to explain how a detailed 3D documentation can also form part of an architectural site’s restoration and preservation project. 

On the same note, the talk introduces the colour and 3D recording of the surfaces (front and back) of one of the oldest tapestries in the collections of Fondazione Giorgio Cini: The Entry into Palestine of Vespasian’s Troops (1470-1480), in need of restoration.
