Modelli plastici di architettura militare: valore di un patrimonio culturale da preservare e valorizzare nell’era digitale

The contribution intends to bring to the attention of the scientific community the important Heritage made of plastic models, more or less homogeneously spread throughout Europe, which constitutes a patrimony of knowledge that links theoretical contributions on fortification, realizations, historical studies, archive documentation, technical representations, surveys, iconographic material.

The enhancement process records an orientation that in recent years has found in the relevant digital tools one of the possible keys for setting up a data system and, in digital modeling, the medium for interesting developments also in relation to the use.

Starting from the studies conducted in recent years on this specific topic, the research group is trying to identify the best strategies to be locally applied to enhance and make available on web different models at the various scales that describe Turin fortification's system and some portions of it.
