It may be written simply as GIS, but it means technology, digitization and three-dimensional modelling, or rather the new frontier for museums.
Indeed, with the Geographic Information System project initiated in 2014, the Vatican Museums, while respecting the millennial heritage they conserve, have taken on the challenge of innovation through the laser detection of all moveable assets within their competence and their consequent virtual 3D reproduction. This is all aimed at adequately and reliably documenting the entire patrimony of the Pope’s Museums, and enabling better cataloguing and management.
All this and much more will be the subject of the next meeting in the Thursdays in the Museums series, entitled "Digitization and 3D Modelling. Application of Geographic Information Systems for the cataloguing and management of heritage", to take place on 12 October in the Conference Hall of the Vatican Museums, in the presence of the Director Barbara Jatta, Alessandra Uncini, head of the General Inventory and Central Catalogue, and Luca Della Giovampaola, head of the Technological Support Office.
