On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, CIVIS organizes the webinar “Basilicas Project: The cultural experience from documentation to fruition”. Speakers within the event will be Martina Attenni, Carlo Bianchini, Marika Griffo, Carlo Inglese and Alfonso Ippolito, from Sapienza Università di Roma.
The event, part of the “Cups & Cakes” Web Seminars, will take place on Zoom between 12:00-13:00 (CET).
Documentation and dissemination of architectural heritage is certainly one of the main objectives of knowledge activities based on integrated survey processes. The collection of data on the basilicas of Santa Maria in Trastevere and Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, which expands the existing documentation on the works in question, goes beyond the qualitative aspect and the high information content. The research presents the first results obtained in the definition of a system based on integrated models. The models propose a new reading of the analyzed contexts, through the systematization of data from the urban to the detailed scale. The project of communication of complex spaces starts from the survey, in which the synthesis of data and information in heterogeneous models is applied to particular needs. The fruition of architectural heritage is developed through different levels of information linked to integrated models that improve perception, accessibility and use of space by different types of users.
This event is open to the public. Please contact Julie Hyzewicz for more information.
CIVIS has been established as a University that reaches from the local level to the international dimension, focused on responding to local needs, contributing to regional development strategies and addressing global challenges. The development of Research and Innovation (R&I), as an integral component of its educational mission, has been part of the CIVIS mission from the very beginning.
It is in this perspective that RIS4CIVIS has been elaborated and now operates. The overall objective is to produce an integrated, long-term R&I Strategy that, will over time enable the constituent members of the CIVIS European University to seamlessly integrate their know-how, expertise and resources in the service of Research and Innovation that effectively addresses current and future societal challenges, at local, regional and international level.
As part of the activities developed to reach this objective, the Cups&Cakes meetings aim to create a discussion forum for researchers to connect and get an overview of what is happening in other partner universities on a specific topic. In the longer term, these exchanges also aim to foster exchanges and develop potential collaborations within the CIVIS Alliance.
These Cups&Cakes arescheduled for one hour and consist of two phases:
– A 40-minutes presentation of current research work chosen by the speaker (including a 5-minute introduction of general expertise and work in progress within the university on the topic of interest).
– Open discussion of about 20 minutes.
Each partner University, in turns, will have the opportunity to present to the CIVIS Community a subject of their research.
