4CH has published its first Pilot Case, the UNESCO site of Ayios Ioannis Lampadistis Monastery on the Troodos Mountains, Cyprus. The work carried out by the Cyprus Institute represents an example of best practices offered by the future 4CH Competence Centre for the conservation, preservation and valorisation of Cultural Heritage.
The Cyprus Institute (APAC Labs) organised a day-long programme at the monastic complex for the occasion of the International Day of Monuments and Sites. This highly visual video shows the interdisciplinary work involved and highlights the importance of documenting Heritage for conservation, preservation and valorisation purposes. Such methods include 3D documentation, analysis of the wall paintings and dendrochronological research. Moreover, the engagement of the community and the local stakeholders for this heritage site are an important factor for its future sustainability.
