The Laboratory of Photogrammetry of the University of Architecture in Venice is involved in a research program aimed to quantitative measurement with respect to reliable and precise informations. The walled city of Cittadella (one mile of medieval walls with four gates and thirty-two towers) will shortly go under a restoration program financed by the Italian Governement, the Veneto Region and the municipality of Cittadella. The question in point is to find the most suitable system to respond to a series of problems that different disciplines will raise which can be here only briefly summarized: 1 - archeological analysis will be concerned in determining the various periods of construction of the different "layers" of the wall; 2 - statical analysis and geodetical surveys will try to determine the quality of the intervention of restoration; 3 - chemical and physical measurements will ascertain the effect of erosion and deterioration of materials testing the most convenient procedures for future protection. For all these purposes a specific field of experiment has been recently set up where photogrammetry will be tested to combine "classical" expertise with the "new" approach of computer vision, 3D models and cost-benefit analysis.
