In this paper we present an innovative, unified and fast methodology allowing digitization of large collections of fine art drawings at high quality, low cost and without the need of any specific expertise. The approach, developed in the DiDeS (Digitalizzazione Disegni e Stampe) project made available digital documents including all attributes, colors, graphic and dimensions characterizing the original artifacts. We defined the minimum requirements and the workflow for the digital acquisition and management of heterogeneous and complex figurative systems, representative of drawings of different typology and sizes. Drawings used in the project belong to the Department of Prints and Drawings of the Uffizi Museum in Florence, one of the most important existing documentary archives. The proposed solution was accurately discussed to show how our findings could be extended to other case of studies and how they will be usable with future improvements at no cost and without performing new digitization.

Abstract

In this paper we present an innovative, unified and fast methodology allowing digitization of large collections of fine art drawings at high quality, low cost and without the need of any specific expertise. The approach, developed in the DiDeS (Digitalizzazione Disegni e Stampe) project made available digital documents including all attributes, colors, graphic and dimensions characterizing the original artifacts. We defined the minimum requirements and the workflow for the digital acquisition and management of heterogeneous and complex figurative systems, representative of drawings of different typology and sizes. Drawings used in the project belong to the Department of Prints and Drawings of the Uffizi Museum in Florence, one of the most important existing documentary archives. The proposed solution was accurately discussed to show how our findings could be extended to other case of studies and how they will be usable with future improvements at no cost and without performing new digitization.
