Carlo Rindi Nuzzolo selected for participating in the H2020 NETCHER Project: 3D Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage at Risk

On February 15th-17th, 2021, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Italy) and the Center for Cultural Heritage Technology – Italian Institute of Technology (Italy) organised the 3D Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage at Risk Training, in the framework of H2020 NETCHER Project.

NETCHER 3D Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage at Risk Training (NTRCHRT) was as a 3-day intensive online education programme focusing on 3D documentation and reconstruction of Cultural Heritage objects at risk to be stolen, trafficked, or damaged.

The goal of this training was to provide the basics to work with photogrammetry, 3D reconstruction and 3D modelling as a means of protecting Cultural Heritage at risk.

NTRCHRT addressed specifically Cultural Heritage professionals working in/for Museums, Archaeological Parks, Art/Archaeology local management offices/Superintendencies and Cultural Heritage national agencies.

The programme offered a multidisciplinary learning experience with hands-on activities and opportunities to learn from professionals in the field. It included pre-recorded tutorials, live lectures, and personal projects to get practice, interact with trainers, and gain familiarity with key software packages (such as ReCap PRO), photography applications to Cultural Heritage objects and metadata structuring, and LiDAR portable technology.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation programme.
