The Digital Cultural Heritage- DigitCH Programme: experiences of documentation and survey for the smart fruition of archaeological heritage


The paper describes the Digital Cultural Heritage-DigitCH programme, aimed at the “smart” documentation of archaeological finds or areas using computer-based visualization for exhibition in museums; in 2013, the programme pioneered the use of fast methods and low cost 3D survey for documenting and displaying archaeological  heritage: finds to be presented with reconstruction visualizations of objects which, due to their dimensions and conservation issues, cannot be seen in the best way, but require an innovative visual approach and a detailed description of their context, workmanship, morphological characteristics and materials.
