PROJECT DESCRIPTION

KEYWORDS: Virtual reality | Art | Museum | Heritage | Digitalization | HERON










The "Luciano Sorlini Foundation" is located within the largest architectural complex of Calvagese della Riviera and, from March 31, 2018, is the headquarters of the MarteS. Sorlini Museum of Art: a private art gallery that exhibits to the public the works collected over time by the entrepreneur from Brescia Luciano Sorlini (1925-2015).
Before the opening to the public, Stefano Lusardi, conservator of the new museum, and Giustina Irene, from DICATAM University of Brescia, commissioned a 3D survey of the building for museum services organizing.


For this particular work, the Topotek company has chosen to exploit the HERON AC-1 Color technology. 3D mapping acquisitions were carried out following two paths: the first one walking along 1.390 meters in 22 minutes crossing the gardens and the open spaces inside the court, and the second one of 610 meters, extended from the gardens to the outside of the villa, by covering the whole block, including the city square and the war memorial monument. Using the HERON Desktop software, it was possible to obtain a point cloud in .ply format and an "x-ray plan". After that, the results were imported into JRC 3D Reconstructor and automatically aligned.




In an hour only, the 3D movie of the detected building was generated. Thanks to the HERON technology, was quickly acquired a large number of elements, fundamental for future museum projects. We are therefore faced with the possibility of moving 3D data into video animations or exploiting them to create interactive activities for VR viewers.
