Sarcophagus of the Spouses

Project researchers

The Sarcophagus of the Spouses project is an interdisciplinary work with the aim of producing a multimedia exhibition with the Etruscan masterpiece as primarily subject. Digital acquisitions and 3D modeling of the Sarcophagus, based on different technologies (photogrammetry, TOF and triangulation-based laser scanning) were conducted by the project partners to deliver highly detailed photo-realistic 3D representations of the Etruscan Sarcophagus for the successive multimedia purposes. The 3D results were also used to benchmark the exisiting 3D recording and modeling techniques and produce best practices and guidelines. The 3D model has been used for the exhibition "Il viaggio oltre la vita. Gli etruschi e l'aldila' tra capolavori e realtà virtuale".
