Mapping the Skyline of Medieval Rome

Palazzo Canavée, aula  C0.63/64

The towers, bell towers, repurposed ruins, and hills that dominated the skyline of medieval Rome are the focus of this research project grounded in the digital humanities. By combining scholarly and computational methods, the aim is to create a 3D map of late medieval Rome in order to explore the interconnectedness of sight and sound, topography, and movement in the city by analyzing acoustics, ballistics, and defensive systems.
