3D Image-based techniques and major software solutions that allow you to extract a 3D model from a digital image set.

Application of close-range photogrammetry technique for controlling of cleaning tests and conservation treatments, and for monitoring of the roughness of surface during restoration or for the study of state of conservation.

Reconstruction of three-dimensional models of small object and sculptures by means of structure from motion techniques for web applications.


Master Degree in Architecture and Ph.D. in Science for Conservation of Cultural Heritage at the University of Florence.

From 2010 to 2016  was a Research Fellow at the Institute for Conservation and Valorization of Cultural Heritage (ICVBC-CNR) in Florence, she did research for the application of photogrammetric and 3D modeling techniques for documentation, diagnostics and monitoring of the state of conservation of Cultural Heritage.

From 1 July 2016 she is a temporary Researcher at ICVBC-CNR.

She is involved in National and International Projects:
- DISCOVER: "DIpinti murali Staccati: criticità della COnserVazione E studio di interventi per la riduzione dei Rischi” - POLO per le TECNOLOGIE PER LA CITTA' SOSTENIBILE - POLIS, finanziato nel quadro del POR FESR Toscana 2007-2013 e PAR FAS 2007-2013;
- TeCon@BC - "Tecnologie innovative per la conservazione e la valorizzazione dei Beni Culturali" (2010- 2012);
- ST@RT “Scienze e Tecnologie per il patrimonio Artistico architettonico e Archeologico Toscano” (2008-2010);
- PARTHENOS: "Pooling Activities, Resources and Tools for Heritage E-research Networking, Optimization and Synergies" (Horaizon 2020).
