FBK 3DOM Unit participates in the European project 5DCULTURE
High-quality 3D digital content will be created for use in the cultural, tourism, and fashion sectors
Fondazione Bruno Kessler‘s 3DOM Unit led by Fabio Remondino is participating in the 5Dculture (Deploying and demonstrating a 3D cultural heritage space) project to enhance Europe’s cultural heritage with high-quality 3D digital content and facilitate its reuse in areas such as education, culture, tourism, and fashion, with a view to social and economic sustainability.
The project, which started earlier this year, will end in December 2024 and is funded under the European Union’s Digital Europe program. The international consortium, coordinated by IN2 Digital Innovation (Germany), includes Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy), Europeana Foundation (Netherlands), European Fashion Heritage Association (Italy), Time Machine Organization (Austria), Connect Archaeology and Architecture in Europe (Ireland), Inception (Italy), Stichting Centraal Museum (Netherlands), Universidad de Jaén (Spain), The Discovery Programme: Centre For Archaeology And Innovation Ireland (Ireland), Stichting Nederlands Instituut Voor Beeld En Geluid (Netherlands), ARCTUR Racunalniski inzeniring DOO (Slovenia).
“”Within the 5DCulture project,” explained Fabio Remondino, “the 3D Optical Metrology (3DOM) Unit has mainly a role in developing tools and technical solutions to facilitate the enhancement and reuse of 3D models in cultural heritage. We will address three different scenarios related to the field of archaeological artifacts, historic urban sites and fashion.”
Our research activities,” Simone Rigon, researcher with the 3DOM Unit, pointed out, “will focus on advancing the solutions the group has implemented in recent years in 3D reconstruction, artificial intelligence and augmented reality. These solutions will facilitate the use and reuse of 3D content in the digital cultural heritage industry to provide increasingly rich user experiences.””
“Our new solutions and applications,” added Elisa Mariarosaria Farella, researcher with the 3DOM Unit, “will support, for example, the Fashion Heritage sector, with the creation of virtual fitting rooms based on augmented reality for the enhancement of historical shoes and clothes. Similarly, we will apply artificial intelligence solutions to derive 4D cityscapes for purposes of virtual cultural tourism, research, education and dissemination”.
