Chiara Piccoli wins scholarship by the Italian Research Council
Chiara Piccoli has been awarded a scholarship by the Italian Research Council to work at the Virtual Heritage Lab of the Institute of Technologies applied to Cultural Heritage (ITABC-CNR) in Rome.
She will be working at the institute in the period from April to July. The Virtual Heritage Lab focuses on digital projects in archaeology and in cultural heritage, relying on an interdisciplinary team of experts to survey and document archaeological evidence with advanced recording techniques.
The lab is specialised in creating real-time interactive three-dimensional Virtual Reality environments of archaeological landscapes and sites and participates in many international projects. Among others, it has developed the Virtual museum of the ancient Via Flaminia and the Virtual Reality application of the Regolini-Galassi Etruscan tomb, which is on display at the Museum of Antiquity in Leiden and the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam.
