UNIVERSITA DI BOLOGNA
Founded in 1088, the University of Bologna (Unibo) is the oldest, the biggest University of Europe and the most reputed of Italy.
Unibo is often considered as the oldest university of the world.
It is also, the first university recognized by the Pope.
- 100 000 students
- 3 000 teachers
Agreement with Unibo
The agreement covers :
- Research on multispectral imaging domain
- Development of new technologies in artistic diagnosis domain
- Development of methodological protocols
- Authentication of polychrome artistic artworks
- Analysis of easel paintings
- The murals are also digitized in very high resolution by our equipment
Contract N.80/2019 PROT.N.1323 from the 09/09/2019.

Provision of instruments by Lumiere Technology
- Multispectral camera
- X Rays scanner
Multispectral CameraOur multispectral camera is available within UNIBO Alma Matter laboratory.
However, it is possible to digitize artworks on the site, like murals.
Or for non-transportable paintings.
X Rays scannerOur large format X rays scanner.
The scanner digitizes artworks until 1,5 m x 1,5 in once, and 3 m x 1,5 m.
We double the resolution with a second pass. Which is allows a 600 dpi resolution.
Adjustable energy levels for better readability from 20 keV to 75 keV. From 2 to 17 mW.
