“Real restoration to preserve, virtual restoration to enhance: an evolving methodology” Massimo Limoncelli presented a report on virtual restoration (the set of integrated computer graphics methodologies, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional), intended not as an ideal reconstruction method for an artefact, but as a methodology for the verification and synthesis of analytical data.
“AR and VR technologies for dissemination: the archaeological heritage made accessible digitally” Michele Scioscia and Sara Lorusso talked about AR and VR technologies. They presented four products, made with AR (Inventum Game, Hold the Hut) and with VR (Multimedia Museum of the former Convent of San Domenico di Ferrandina and Pietragalla).
“Archeology and community: the Open Salapia Project” Roberto Goffredo presented Open Salapia, a public archeology project that involves a team of Italian-Canadian archaeologists in the area of the ancient Lake Salpi. The main objective is to contribute to the co-creation of a shared knowledge of the local territorial heritage understood as a "synergistic and non-divisible set of environmental, landscape, urban, cultural, social, economic values".
