Conference paper


This paper proposes the teaching experience of the course of Advanced Survey and Techniques of Representation (Five-year master degree in Architecture, Ferrara), whose main theme was the imposing monumental complex of San Michele in Bosco (Bologna). In recent years our research team has developed models and digital media products, focused on this theme, and on other issues of historic architecture. These products, both interactive and not, are useful for the communication of research results and the dissemination of complex and layered scientific contents. These experimentations undeniably represent the future of museal communication, and their results can be shown to the students as a possible field of research, but also as a job opportunity.
