The ambitious €2.9m 3D-PITOTI project involves a multidisciplinary team of over 30 scientists from across Europe and focuses on rock art in the Valcamonica Valley, Italy. This UNESCO World Heritage site in the Lombardy region of northern Italy has the largest group of this ‘rock art’ in Europe. Tens of thousands of images span a period from many centuries BC into medieval times.
The aim of this project is to devise a coarse-to-fine 3D reconstruction and visualization pipeline to preserve this unique heritage and to provide access to the enriched high resolution digital rock-art for scientists, museum visitors, school children and web users.
