The purpose of this project is to identify archeological opportunities for the Archeology Superintendence of Venice. Our sponsor Luigi Fozzati and the Archeology Superintendence supported our efforts in collecting data from the floors and artifacts of the churches of Castello and San Polo. We focused on the condition assessment and collection of information from the floors and artifacts found in the 22 churches studied. We provided a multitude of map info layers using the GIS system MapInfo as well as a complete and detailed database of condition assessment and information about floors and artifacts. The floors and artifacts were evaluated not only as restoration sites but also as historic relics.
