Giotto in Assisi: 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 San Francesco in Assisi will soon be available on-line. In order to document the 28 panels which decorate the central nave of the Basilica10000 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-shoot  currently being displayed at the exhibition "Giotto e il Trecento. Il più sovrano maestro stato in dipintura" in Rome, till the end of July and which coincides with the tenth anniverary of the re-opening of the Basilica of San Francesco after the disastrous earthquake of 1997 in Umbria and its subsequent invaluable restoration.
