3D Imaging and Anatomy: Medicine and Architecture

Wednesday, June 14 – 5:30 pm
Literary Café
Piazza Borghese 9, Rome

On Wednesday, June 14, the Sapienza Literary Café will host a debate on "3D Imaging and Anatomy: the parallel lives of medical and architectural disciplines".

Alessandro Olivi, former neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, who is now the Director of the Neurosurgery Institute at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome, and Carlo Bianchini, Professor of Drawing and Director of the History, Design and Restoration Department at the Sapienza Faculty of Architecture, will illustrate how seemingly different expertise often converges.

The discussion will focus on how 3D Imaging has become a tool shared by medicine and architecture to advance knowledge and refine operational techniques by reconstructing “what happened before” the digital revolution, the technical features of the tools that led to this revolution, and how 3D imaging allows us "to do what could not be done before. "

The meeting will be opened by Sapienza Rector Eugenio Gaudio and followed by presentations by Carlo Bianchini and Alessandro Olivi, Fabio Quici, Professor of Drawing and Researcher of Relationships between Science and Images, and Stefano Catucci, Professor of Aesthetics at Sapienza University. The Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Anna Maria Giovenale, will conclude the debate.
