Churches damaged by the earthquake
After the earthquake of 2012, the ecclesiastical heritage of Mantua was damaged so as to render unusable many buildings. Especially churches show a higher vulnerability in relation to their architectural features.
After the first phase of expeditious damage detection, a methodic analysis has allowed to know the real state of conservation of many architectures.
The Diocese of Mantua commissioned to the Mantua Campus of Politecnico di Milano the survey and digital documentation of 25 churches differently affected by the seismic event.
The survey was done using laser scanner and photogrammetric methods, with different workflows according to the level of damage.
