Cover Image: Palazzo Diotti, a neoclassical marvel situated in Milan, Italy, has served as the office of the Prefect of Milan since 1859. Originally constructed during the early 16th century, it underwent extensive reconstruction over a two-decade period starting in 1782 when it was acquired by Giovanni Battista Diotti, a prosperous lawyer and amateur architect. The paper titled "3D Heterogeneous Dataset for Structural Analysis of Historic Buildings: A Discussion on Process Pipelines," authored by Umair Shafqat Malik, Andrea Garzulino, and Davide Del Curto, introduces a methodology for generating a comprehensive heterogeneous 3D dataset tailored to assess the structural integrity of historical edifices. The study applies this methodology to evaluate the seismic vulnerability and structural behavior of Palazzo Diotti.
