At the end of September in Monfalcone, Italy, the exhibition “Faces from History” was opened. In the preparation of the exhibition participated experts from the Institute for Anthropological research and in the exhibition itself were used templates from several Croatian archeological sites.
The exhibition “Faces from History” aims to reconstruct individuals with the help of the latest diagnostic technologies and photogrammetric 3D analysis. The exhibition itself is divided into seven parts, the first part is more technical and “reveals” the method and scientific assumptions on which the reconstruction of the face is based. The other six thematic units take us through different geographical and chronological aspects from Aquileia to Asia Minor, passing through the Danube and the Nile delta, starting from prehistory to the late Middle Ages. These units show the visitor the identification of people from the distant past who, using digital methods, regain their physiognomic features and tell their story.
The exhibition is essentially “intangible” because it does not exhibit archaeological artifacts but a series of three-dimensional installations (3D printing, video mapping, holograms) that represent a virtual processing of specific archaeological material, and is designed as an educational and popular event that, without changing biological and historical data, science, (bio)archeology and history.
The exhibition will also be set up in Trieste from mid-October this year, and we invite all interested to visit it if they can.
