EUreka3D at the Mnemosyne Summer School 2023


The Mnemosyne Project Summer-School 2023 was held in Limassol (Cyprus) at the Pefkos-Hotel from the 23rd until the 27th of October.  The Deputy Minister of Culture, the Deputy Minister of Research & Innovation, the Mayor of Limassol were present at the Opening Ceremony.

The event with the title: “Re-envisioning Cultural Heritage Documentation in the Metaverse Age” focused on the training of scholars, stakeholders and other professionals in the area of 2D/3D digital documentation of Tangible Cultural Heritage. Drawing from a wide range of experts, stakeholders and policy-makers various innovation projects to identify, record, protect and manage heritage assets were selectively showcased to attendees, enabling the active engagement of communities – including women, youth and civil society.

As part of the training, a session about the EUreka3D action took place on 24th October, coordinated by the project leader Antonella Fresa (Photoconsortium) and Marinos Ioannides (Cyprus University of Technology), specifically focusing on emphasis on the use of Cloud Infrastructures and the process of aggregating and harvesting high quality 3D models for publication in Europeana.

In the context of the summer school, a hands-on session was also organized, to digitize one of the most important squares of Limassol: the so called Friendship Square, a place in the bicommunal area of Limassol, which is going to be fully restored and used as the 1st of its kind project for the rapprochement between GR and TR Cypriots. The Municipality of Limassol, the Bishopric and all other involved authorities gave the permission to digitise the entire square and create the 3D BIM models from the two most important monuments: The Saint Antonio Church as well as the two hundred meters away Ibrahim-Aga Mosque. It is expected that the models and associated metadata will be aggregatesd and harvested for publication in Europeana.
