Abstract

MUSINT II is part of a bigger project involving a series of virtual and interactive museums, using traditional and new technologies with the aim to reach an enlarged audience. The presence of Archaeologists, Architects/Designers and Computer Scientists ensures an interdisciplinary methodology  that makes our project rich of solutions and attractive to different visitors. MUSINT II uses a sophisticated structure, a series of 3 dimensional models produced both with photogrammetry and laser scanner. A complex database with numerous interconnected queries is implemented in order to enhance the study of a large number of objects giving really innovatory answers and effortless data processes. New hyper-realistic techniques are used to  best illustrate the reconstruction of buildings, objects and scenes of life. A specific educational section is directed to young people where all these new techniques are applied in a winning way. The main object of MUSINT II consists in a specific category of small objects: sealings and seals coming from the excavations at Haghia Triada carried out by the Italian Archaeological expedition in Crete at the beginning of 1900. Our purpose is to offer a new analytic and, at the same time, a synthetic vision, opened to a large audience, of the historical-archaeological representation of one of the most important sites of Minoan Crete.
