Haltadefinizione takes photographic records of the Sala delle Asse before it undergoes restoration

Ultra-high definition imaging of Leonardo’s ceiling painting in Milan’s Sforza Castle

Haltadefinizione’s team has completed the ultra-high definition digital imaging of the vaulted ceiling and walls of the Sala delle Asse, the heart of the Sforza Castle in Milan and a controversial example of Leonardo's work as a court artist to Ludovico Sforza. The imaging campaign was undertaken in view of the restoration that the whole room is to undergo in the following months and which will probably lead to new important discoveries.

The digital imaging process has allowed to capture photographic records of every detail of the frescoes, with over 220 gigapixels of data, and will play a key role in the planning of future conservation activities.
