GEOMETRY AND INFORMATION FOR THE PRESERVATION OF A ROMAN MOSAIC THROUGH A HBIM APPROACH
Keywords: HBIM, mosaics, planned conservation, informative modeling
Abstract. The archaeological site is a mine of data and information that helps to deepen the knowledge of its origin, history, and structure. This virtuous approach becomes even more effective when these data, properly processed and structured, form the basis for a project of conservation and enhancement of the cultural asset.
The Roman mosaics dug in Castiglione delle Stiviere in 1995 represent an interesting case in which all the archaeological information, made available by the Superintendence, was used through an HBIM (Historical Building Information Modeling) approach for the conservation project. The Stratigraphic Units (US) of the findings have identified the strategy for the geometric and informative modeling of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) model and have also been exploited in the design phase for the project of the new roof structure and especially for the cost analysis. The structuring of the data by stratigraphic units was also used in the drafting of the preventive and planned conservation, necessary to enhance and prolong the state of good health of the property.
This work has been developed in the internship activity within a training course on HBIM, in collaboration with the Diocese of Mantua, owner of the property.
