Virtual restoration 2. The frescoes of the rock-cut church of Lama D’Antico at Fasano.

Condividi su:

This second book of the "Virtual Restoration" series stands as a natural, or philological, continuation of the previous volume "Virtual restoration 1. Paintings and Mosaics" published in 2017. In the first book, in fact, the general issue of virtual restoration applied to pictorial and mosaic surfaces was presented through 38 case studies that dealt with specific problems: from surveying to the representation of surfaces, from degradation mapping to color analysis, from lacunae treatment to virtual reconstruction, up to surface diagnostic analysis and stylistic restoration. This second volume, instead, is the result of a research conducted for several years within the rock-cut church of Lama d'Antico at Fasano (Puglia, Italy) and aims to illustrate all the applications used in the field of virtual pictorial restoration in a single context. This research has allowed not only to reconstruct the frescoes in a virtual environment, through the creation of the first part of the "Virtual Museum of Rock Churches" in the area of Fasano (known as "Lama D'Antico Experience"), but also to review the iconography of the same frescoes by providing, thanks to the possibilities offered today by the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), new interpretations for the study of medieval painting in Puglia.
