Short bio

Gianna Bertacchi is a PhD student enrolled in the 34th cycle of the PhD course in Cultural and Environmental Heritage at the Ravenna Campus - University of Bologna.

She graduated from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Florence, in 2015, with a Master’s Degree thesis on surveying and enhancing Cultural Heritage: Gianna Bertacchi, Marco Corridori, “An Architecture and its vocation: the monastery of Saints Bartolomeo and Romualdo in Fabriano” (La vocazione di un’architettura: il monastero dei Santi Bartolomeo e Romualdo a Fabriano). Supervisor: Prof. Alessandro Merlo; co-supervisor: Arch. Stefania Franceschi, Arch. Leonardo Germani, Dott. Simone De Fraja. 110/110 cum laude.

In 2017 she enrolled in the professional association for Architecture of the Lucca district.

In 2018 she worked as a research fellow on the “SACHER project: Smart Architecture for Cultural Heritage in Emilia-Romagna” (Design e sviluppo delle funzionalità della piattaforma SACHER per il monitoraggio e il restauro di Beni Culturali), at the Interdepartmental Centre for Industrial ICT Research, University of Bologna.

In 2018 she graduated from a 2-year post-graduate school in Architectural and Landscape Heritage at the University of Florence (Università degli Studi di Firenze, Scuola di Specializzazione in Beni Architettonici e del Paesaggio), with a thesis on Cultural Heritage documentation and restoration: Arch.

Research profile

Her general research field deals with the use of digital technologies for the documentation, management, dissemination, and enhancement of Cultural Heritage, both in architectural and archaeological contexts, often in sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Since her graduation, she has focussed on architectural and archaeological Cultural Heritage. For this reason, she attended a 2-year post-graduate school in Architectural and Landscape Heritage in Florence to extend her knowledge of the documentation and restoration of cultural assets.

Given the significant development of digital technologies applied to Cultural Heritage, which have become a standard in the last decade, she has studied the use of the Terrestrial Laser Scanner and digital photogrammetry for the creation of three-dimensional reality-based models of cultural assets. Particular attention has been paid to the optimization of meshes and textures.

In recent years, she has focussed on the use of digital technologies and 3D models for the management, dissemination and valorisation of Cultural Heritage. Her PhD thesis mainly deals with the management of Cultural Heritage through the compilation of guidelines for the creation and use of 3D models and data related to Cultural Heritage.

She has participated in numerous international conferences presenting academic studies. Her publications mainly concern the use of digital technologies applied to Cultural Heritage.
