An important photographic acquisition in the Upper Basilica.
High definition images of the cycle of frescoes painted by Giotto on the walls of the Upper Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi will soon be available on-line. In order to document the 28 panels which decorate the central nave of the Basilica 10,000 photos were taken for a total of 230 gigabytes of data.
This important photographic acquisition is already visible, in part, thanks to an HD film currently being shown at the exhibition "Giotto e il Trececento. Il più sovrano maestro stato in dipintura" in Rome, till the end of July and which coincides with the 10th anniversary of the re-opening of the Basilica of Saint Francis after the disastrous Umbria earthquake of 1997 and its subsequent invaluable restoration.
