The Convent of Saint Francis in Boville Ernica (FR) presents a single hall church and an adjacent cloister with a a trompe-l'oeil in the main entrance. During centuries the convent underwent processes of modification and transformation, from the XIV century to the half of the XX century. Currently the church houses a museum, while the convent is used as residence. The work is interdisciplinary and combines: historic studies; architectural survey; metrologic, proportional, constructive analysis; degradation and structural studies. The project aims to safeguard historical and architectural values, to propose a compatible revitalization of the complex, to enhance the architectural heritage and its urban context. 3D modeling plays an important role, because it is intended not only as a way of outcomes communication, but it is used as a research tool during the whole process: according to a principle of specularity between surveying and planning, the digital model configures itself as an interpretative model for the historical-critical study and becomes the reference and support for the project. In this way the model is an interoperable instrument for data analysis and elaboration, for architectural characteristic study, for protection, valorization and communication.

Abstract

The Convent of Saint Francis in Boville Ernica (FR) presents a single hall church and an adjacent cloister with a a trompe-l'oeil in the main entrance. During centuries the convent underwent processes of modification and transformation, from the XIV century to the half of the XX century. Currently the church houses a museum, while the convent is used as residence. The work is interdisciplinary and combines: historic studies; architectural survey; metrologic, proportional, constructive analysis; degradation and structural studies. The project aims to safeguard historical and architectural values, to propose a compatible revitalization of the complex, to enhance the architectural heritage and its urban context. 3D modeling plays an important role, because it is intended not only as a way of outcomes communication, but it is used as a research tool during the whole process: according to a principle of specularity between surveying and planning, the digital model configures itself as an interpretative model for the historical-critical study and becomes the reference and support for the project. In this way the model is an interoperable instrument for data analysis and elaboration, for architectural characteristic study, for protection, valorization and communication.
