Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Subject of the study is to define a method for three-dimensional graphical analysis of a painting of illusion; scope is the study quadrature in the choir of the church of Santa Maria of Palermo, executed by a pupil of Paolo Amato, architect of the Senate of Palermo and author of an interesting treatise on Perspective. The topographic survey and photogrammetric survey of the vault of the choir have led to the definition of a textured three-dimensional model of the building, which made it possible to investigate in a timely manner the projective structure of the painted scenes and the relationships between the representation techniques used and the rules outlined by Amato in his treatise.
