  • Smart approaches to enhance technical knowledge of in/low-accessible

    • Authors: Margherita Lasorella; Elena Cantatore, Fabio Fatiguso
      Abstract: For Cultural Heritage, the knowledge phase has a key role in the recovery process and it requires to be related to the in/low accessibility level of architecture. Even if, the “accessibility” usually relates the physical dimension of architecture to the end-users, inherent morphological and conservative features, as well as external stresses, may compromise the full knowledge of architecture by technicians involved in the recovery process. Due to that, the paper identifies a fast and smart approach for the remote fruition and knowledge of inaccessible and low accessible Heritage using Virtual Reality-based model. These are designed combining Virtual Tours, based on spherical images of the real environment, and relational database to support technicians in remote semi-guided analysis, diagnosis and assessment of the Heritage. Smartness and potentialities of the methodology are finally tested to the representative case of “Palazzo Carmelo” (Cerignola, Apulia Region, Italy).

  • Hulot's Selinunte: digital analysis and virtual reconstruction

    • Authors: Mirco Cannella
      Abstract: Some drawings feature a powerful evocative nature, capable of presenting a truthful vision that can replace, in collective imagination, the actual expression of reality. This is the case of the "restorations" of Selinunte proposed by the French architect Jean-Louis Hulot (Paris 1871 -1959) which still today evoke the splendours of the ancient city. Thanks to his accurate surveys and inspired by the visit to the remains of further ancient cities such as Priene, Tera, Delos, and Pompeii, Hulot proposed in his watercolour drawings a vision of a "living" city, rendered at the height of its architectural and social magnificence. The paper presents a study on digital solutions that combine data from recent surveys with a 3D reconstruction based on Hulot's drawings, to propose a visual experience of the ancient city of Selinunte.

  • Computer Vision algorithms performance in architectural heritage
           multi-image based projects. General overview and operative evaluation: the
           North Tower of Buñol's Castle (Spain)

    • Authors: Jose Luis Cabanes Gines; Carlos Bonafé Cervera
      Abstract: Multi-image based modeling has proven to be effective providing solutions for surveying and documenting cultural heritage, and in particular architectural heritage. In addition to the issues related with instruments and captation strategy, the operativity of these projects is supported by three bases: Computer Vision (C.V.) algorithms, analytical close-range photogrammetry, and theory of errors. In this work we propose an approach that examines the importance of the first, from two points of view. On one hand, we present a brief overview of its intervention in the different processing stages, both in photomodeling as in photograms stitching projects, thus reviewing the fundaments regarding the two classic branches of architectural photogrammetry. On the other, we present a review of the operational strategy with these algorithms, through a case study that evaluates the results of two software applications, advancing some methodological improvements.

  • Decision-making for historic building diagnosis by logical inference in
           HBIM approach: the case of onsite inspection of timber elements

    • Authors: Silvana Bruno; Mariella De Fino
      Abstract: The paper is going to outline a methodological framework for the visual strength grading of timber structural elements, based on the Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) approach for data collection and management. Particularly, the development of rule-based inference routines by Visual Programming Language (VPL) is proposed in order to support the automated elaboration of relevant information toward reliable assessment of residual performances. The presentation of an illustrative case study, a small theatre in South Italy, gives the opportunity to show some representative aspects – parametric modelling of building components, integration of external databases, application of the inference algorithm and elaboration of diagnostic reports – of the proposed methods and techniques, which are meant to pave the way for further applications in diagnosis of building pathologies by automated decision-making tools.

  • Digital models for e-conservation: the HBrIM of a bridge along the Aterno

    • Authors: Adriana Marra; Ilaria Trizio, Giovanni Fabbrocino, Francesca Savini
      Abstract: Existing road and railway system often incorporate bridges, part of the historical heritage, that need careful attention not only for their operational safety and safeguard. For this reason, the approach to the inspection and to the constructional knowledge require the integration and coordination of phases like the analysis of primary sources to in-situ characterization of local and global performance of components and materials. The management of infrastructures has to exploit digital technologies, both in the data collection phase and in the decision-making process. The paper deals with the e-conservation paradigm and discusses the results of an investigation on the potentialities offered by parametric models of historic bridges. It also checks and validates the introduction of the approach advised by recent National regulations in the framework of the Historic Bridge Information Modelling (HBrIM) combining safety and conservation knowledge instances.

  • An applied workflow to achieve reliable colors in BIM software renderings

    • Authors: Gianluca Guarini; Maurizio Rossi
      Abstract: The BIM methodology offers the various professionals involved in the design phase a database of information relating to the project's various components. Among this information, colour can be reported in two ways: at the level of digital data to be inserted in the database and at the level of representation in the visualization design images, which are the renderings. Although having to follow standard and specific procedures depending on the device used, the correct acquisition of the colour to be used in the project and its insertion as data is an overall linear process. Instead, the discussion on maintaining the consistency of colour between reality and its representation in the renderings is more complicated and open. This article presents a general and as effective as possible study regarding resolving this problem, analyzing the various criticalities, and proposing possible solutions using the tools currently offered by BIM software with the help of external plug-ins.

  • A technique for urban color mapping starting from the case study of Marco
           Zanuso’s Collegio di Milano

    • Authors: Zhaohua Lei; Fabrizio Ivan Apollonio, Marco Gaiani
      Abstract: In pursuit of a more objective approach to efficiently support the urban color design, the aim of this study is the introduction of a multiscale approach to the urban space color analysis. The paper opens with the presentation of a robust method, based on scales of perception, then it analyses the urban color at different scales, and it deepens into color corrected images. Specific features, problems and solutions are then illustrated. The Collegio di Milano complex, designed by the famous architect Marco Zanuso, was selected as a case study to prove the methodology’s effectiveness on a real complex placed into a wider urban area. As a final outcome the methodology introduced proved how urban color mapping is a versatile process where the main role is played by multi-scale presence of color perception and material.

  • Movie barcode as support for video analysis and film restoration

    • Authors: Alice Plutino; Beatrice Sarti, Gabriele Simone, Alessandro Rizzi
      Abstract: A movie barcode is a graph where the colors used in each frame are extracted and represented in succession. Since it is very intuitive, this tool is mainly used to represent movies and videos artistically and creatively. In this study, we propose the use of movie barcodes with a scientific and colorimetric approach, to summarize in a single image the chromatic variations of a movie. Thanks to this approach, it has been possible to extract movies chromatic mood boards and make comparisons among videos or different versions of the same video. The main potential of this approach is the possibility to study and test different methods of video enhancement and color correction, which could be useful not only in video processing but also in the domain of digital film restoration.

  • The art of pottery from the Picenum area: digital reconstruction and color
           replication of vases found in the davanzali necropolis in Numana

    • Authors: Enrico Zampieri; Vincenzo Baldoni, Simone Garagnani, Andrea Gaucci, Michele Giovanni Silani
      Abstract: Digital replicas of pottery, due to their many benefits in terms of sharing opportunities and visualization, recently became popular in museum exhibits, often introducing virtual expositions for pieces belonging to collections all over the world. However, the accuracy of digital duplicates plays a paramount role in the perception of shapes and colors, since the most minute feature could easily lead to identify unexpected clues of an object. This is particularly true of pottery, whose materials, manufacturing techniques and decorations have been subject to dedicated research throughout history. This paper introduces some of the specific outcomes of a research program, oriented to the quick digital acquisition, 3D replication and accurate visualization at the different scales of the Davanzali necropolis in Numana, a settlement of ancient Picenum (Marche Region, Italy).
