Proximal Remote Sensing e Spatial Analysis per la Conservazione delle Pitture Parietali Pompeiane. il Caso del Gymnasium

Maria Danese, Nicola Masini, Maria Sileo, Rosa Lasaponara


The paper presents a combination of geophysics technologies and spatial analysis methods for the analysis of an improper geographical space: the frescoe of the east wall at the Gymnasium (Pompei). This allows to construct a decay map and to quantify decay patterns found as a first step for restauration, protection and mitigation of the risk that involves the frescoe.

Parole chiave

Conservazione; analisi spaziali; proximal remote sensing; structure-from-motion; Termografia multitemporale; GPR
