Spring School

In continuity with the 29th CIPA Symposium in Florence, the next 2023 CIPA Spring School will take place in Montecatini Terme, one of the "Greatest Thermal Cities in Europe" inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This serial transnational site, which includes 11 emblematic cities of the important European thermal phenomenon, active from 1700 until the 1930s, represents a unique case of urban development born around a medical practice, from which a new urban typology arose, characterized by unprecedented form, function and specific architecture. 

The 8th CIPA2023 Spring School “3D surveying and modeling of cultural heritage” has been a great opportunity to learn, share, and connect with each other, linked by the topic of documentation of Cultural Heritage. 

🌍 35 people from 15 Counties, with different backgrounds, ages, and interests, decided to join this event in Montecatini Terme (PT), Italy, from 23th to 29th March 2023.
