Project description:

This report explains the leaning process of the Tower of Pisa since its construction and how, at the moment of greatest leaning, a series of engineering solutions were applied that would save the monument.

Impact reached:

The piece published on the anniversary of the reopening of the monumet and was well received by the audience.

Techniques/technologies used:

The tower was modeled in 3D and the whole sequence was encouraged. The whole environment was animated by google earth studio and then the recreation in 3D was added. The entire sequence was subsequently edited in after effects and rendered in mp4 to scrolling the entire restoration process.

What was the hardest part of this project?

the most complex part was the documentation of all the phases of restoration of the tower.

What can others learn from this project?

It is one more example of how combined techniques of maps, 3d and animation allow a good ralate.
