About this book

This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview on the most pressing issues in the conservation and management of archaeological, architectural, and urban landscapes. Multidisciplinary research is presented on a wide range of built heritage sites, from archaeological ruins and historic centers through to twentieth century and industrial architectural heritage. The role of ICT and new technologies, including those used for digital archiving, surveying, modeling, and monitoring, is extensively discussed, in recognition of their importance for professionals working in the field. Detailed attention is also paid to materials and treatments employed in preventive conservation and management. With contributions from leading experts, including university researchers, professionals, and policy makers, the book will be invaluable for all who seek to understand, and solve, the challenges face d in the protection and enhancement of the built heritage.

She has held scientific responsibility for various projects of the Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research (MIUR-PRIN). Her main research areas are: (a) chemical and morphological characterization of materials of cultural heritage (particularly natural stones, mortars and plasters, mural paintings, ceramic materials, polychrome surfaces, and polymeric items); (b) characterization and evaluation of polymeric treatments applied to cultural heritage; and (c) micro- and non-invasive spectroscopic characterization of materials. Professor Toniolo is the author of more than 60 scientific publications in international journals (H index 16) and 150 publications in proceedings of international conferences, books etc.

Gabriele Guidi received his M.S. Degree in Electronic Engineering in 1988 from the University of Florence, and Ph.D. in 1992 from the University of Bologna, Italy. He is Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano. He worked for more than 10 years on researches about ultrasound equipment for biomedical imaging. Since 2000 he reoriented his activity by applying imaging technologies to the field of non contact 3D measurement. He has been working on applications of 3D imaging in various fields, with special emphasis to Industrial Design and Cultural Heritage documentation. Dr. Guidi is Senior Member of the IEEE. He works as reviewer of a few international journals such as “The IEEE Transactions on System, Man and Cybernetics”, “The IEEE Transactions on Image Processing” and “Machine Vision and Applications” (Springer).
