New Center at Calit2 to Work on Da Vinci Masterpiece

Calit2 will create a new center in early 2007 to bring the benefits of science and technology to the analysis and restoration of great works of art and historic monuments. UCSD bioengineering alum Maurizio Seracini, Class of '73, joined the staff of Calit2 in October and is leading the effort to create a center of interdisciplinary studies for art, architecture and archaeology. Mentioned in "The Da Vinci Code," Seracini pioneered the use of multi-spectral imaging and other techniques to scan works of art and one of the new center's first projects will focus on a Da Vinci masterpiece. The center will also launch a project to study one of the most important structures of Renaissance Italy.
