Members from UTBv and SSSA teams have made a small visit to the Museo Archeologico di Cecina, within the external stages from the second year of the project carried out at Pisa. The purpose was to find ways to collaborate for improving the outreach of the Etruscan tumulus tomb (the tholos tomb), which has been recently reconstructed on the premises of the Museum. The tomb was discovered in 1932 in the small town of Casaglia (Montecatini Val di Cecina, PI), located on a hilltop overlooking the Cecina valley.
Our idea is to use Google Tango and reconstruct the tomb in Augmented Reality. This includes modeling the central pillar, the top of the tomb, the entrance walls and the objects (bronze vessels, funerary urns) inside it.
