New JPI Cultural Heritage project for RISE on the Enhancement of Middle Ages Heritage Experiences 


RISE CoE is contributing to the preservation of Europe’s cultural heritage through its participation in a new JPI Cultural Heritage project titled Enhancement of Heritage Experiences: the Middle Age Digital Layered Models of Architecture and Mural Paintings over Time’(EHEM).  

This 3-year project has been qualified for funding under the JPICH Conservation, Protection and Use Call.
The project aims to obtain virtual reconstructions of medieval artistic heritage architecture with mural paintings that are as close as possible to the original at different times, incorporating historical-artistic knowledge and the diachronic perspective of heritage, as an instrument for researchers, restorers and heritage curators and to improve the visitor's perceptions and experiences.

Using digital models, the project will try to understand the architectural complexity of buildings, solve painting’s chromatic problems and raise and propose the resolution of lighting problems of the medieval building and its paintings.

EHEM is coordinated by the University of Barcelona and the consortium includes the Roma Tre University, the Tuscia University and RISE CoE. 

Dr Panayiotis Charalambous (Leader of the V-EUPNEA: Living, Breathing Virtual Worlds Research Group at RISE Research Center) is the local Principal Investigator of EHEM.

Other people involved in the project are Prof. Andreas Lanitis, leader of the BIO-SCENT research group, Prof. Theopisti Stylianou-Lambert, leader of the MUSEUM LAB research group, Maria Shehade Research Associate of the Museum Lab and Maria Paschali external collaborator at the RISE CoE.
