In this paper we will report on the importance of 3D
documentation as a tool for study and communication in
Cultural Heritage, with particular reference to the experience
grown up at Centro Conservazione e Restauro La Venaria Reale
(in the text: CCR La Venaria Reale) and to its application on
We will focus on the purpose-built virtual viewer, set up in
order to solve specific operational needs of the working group.
We will consider for that significant case studies for innovation
that 3D technology has brought in terms of streamlining
processes and sharing results.
We will also focus on technical advantages obtained by the
realization of a 3D model of the remains of a 22nd dynasty
cartonnage, found by the Italian Archaeological Mission at the
area of the Temple of Millions of Years of Amenhotep II
(Luxor, West bank, Egypt), and on the benefit in using 3D
