Case Study – The Verruca Fortress

posted in: News


Professor Giovanni Pancani from the Architectural Department DIDA of University of Florence, Italy, carried out a surveying project affecting the so-called “Verruca” Fortress together with Ph.D. Matteo Bigongiari and a group of his students.

This ancient fortress, located upon the homonymous Mount Verruca in the Province of Pisa (Tuscany, Italy), is in an advanced state of decay. For this reason, the goal of this project was its 3D reconstruction, using both photogrammetry and laser scanning, to extract further outputs, essential to perform instrumental analysis through the study of the morphological profile of the rock and identify the degree of damage and deformation.
