The Colosseum is a historical structure of inestimable cultural value both for Italy and for the whole world. It is, therefore, necessary to preserve and protect the structural integrity of the historic structures that are incorporated into a constantly developing urban context such as that of the Italian capital.
A tender has been announced by the “Ministry of Cultural Heritage” and the contracting authority for the project is the “Parco Archeologico del Colosseo“. The aim of this monitoring project is to be the pilot project for processing the monitoring of the Colosseum and verifying the satellite data already acquired and being studied on the ground.
Move Solutions was therefore involved as a specialized partner by IMG, an Italian company that won the tender, providing a complete structural and environmental monitoring system. The monitoring system consists of Triaxial Accelerometer, Triaxial Tiltmeter and multiple probes connected to Analog Communication Nodes. All sensors supplied by Move Solutions are completely wireless and easily managed remotely thanks to the Move Cloud Platform.
For the entire installation on the Colosseum, which is absolutely non-invasive, it took only 2 days. In addition, to reduce the visual impact and to better incorporate these IoT devices in the historical context of the Colosseum, the sensors were painted by a restorer appointed by the “Belle Arti di Roma” with the aim of camouflaging them.
