A digital key to understanding the landscape


This essay deals with the relationship between the laser scanner survey, the digital modelling techniques and the forms of architectural representation applied to the analysis and the project. Carried out in an archaeological site a few kilometers north of Trento, the central theme of the research is the elaboration of images that are both the result of scientific processes of knowledge and awareness‒raising tool, preservation and enhancement of the building and the entire territory: images that look to cultural tourism as to the reinforcement of local identity. The goal is twofold: the virtual reconstruction of the past, when the artefacts and their functions were more clearly recognizable; and the study of a lighting project that will involve architecture in environment even in the dark of night.
