RESTORATION - ARCHEOLOGY

Passion and interest for the protection of cultural heritage led us to apply our know-how in non-destructive analysis for the search for archaeological finds and structures with archaeologicl value and for restoration and 3D Web museum cataloguing.

The following are the main sectors of application identified:

  • Restoration of cultural heritage
  • Siti di interesse archeologico su terra ed in mare
  • Museums and digital innovation
  • Web

Tecnologiepm carries out research-survey activities with the aid of state-of the-art, mainly non-destructive, innovative technologies:

  • 2D-3D multifrequency GPR
  • Magnetometers
  • 2D-3D geoelectric analysis
  • Seismic refraction and reflection
  • Core borings with video inspection probes
  • Video inspections from customised hole for access to finds and substructures unearthed
  • Checks with infrared thermal imager
  • Acoustic correspondence systems
  • Laser scanner surveys
  • Drones
  • Lidar surveys

Our staff has participated in surveys and modelling of different archaeological sites: studies are carried out in collaboration with archaeologists and historians, and in partnership with private companies and superintendents for archaeological and cultural heritage.

We also have experience and expertise in post-excavation and post-restoration modelling:

  • Management of excavation progress
  • Entering information into a database set that is useful for museum publication on the web
  • Creation of computerised archaeological heritage map
  • Creation of computerised cultural heritage map

Our technological surveys bring an important innovation of process and data management: stratification of the survey system is recorded in a modelling and results of analysis management system. The information becomes shareable on the web: it is thus possible to generate a museum system of the finds under consideration. 3D modelling makes it possible to extrapolate significant architectural and structural data of what is found, integrating architectural information with data of structural and engineering value. Surveys are also studied for prototyping and modelling on 3D printers.

Tecnologiepm has researched and invented sensors that can be adapted to predictive monitoring of archaeological areas and/or areas of cultural interest. Integrated chips are installed with infrared thermographic microsensors and/or seismic sensors for the creation of control units that permit continuous and remote data analysis, both of degradation phenomena and of dynamic seismic monitoring. The chips can be customised for various sensors and are affordable. In the field of 3D Web musealisation we are able to realise augmented reality processing software.

High diagnostic expertise, together with advanced data analysis procedures of information, make the surveys carried out by Tecnologiepm in the field of archaeology and restoration very competitive: both in terms of quality and in terms of investments and costs.
