The post-2012 earthquake documentation of 23 churches in the Diocesi di Mantova was carried out by the Hesutech group with a diversified approach that depended on both their state of disruption and hazard, and the necessities and documentation required by entities and professionals interested in intervening on the assets. For many cases the laser scanner survey with topographic support was carried out in the emergency phase and to support the securing of the buildings; for others, a detailed survey (TLS and photogrammetric) was carried out to completely document the state of damage and conservation of the surfaces for the restoration project. In all cases an attempt was made to find the best operating methods imposed by each singular situation.
