Abstract

The holdings of historic aerial photographs in Italy are substantial, mainly preserved in the two major archives of the Istituto Geografico Militare in Florence and the Aerofototeca Nazionale in Rome. Amongst the holdings in the Aerofototeca, there is unique material that is not duplicated elsewhere, and together these archives form a valuable resource for the study of the Italian landscape and its cultural heritage. Following brief summaries of the major aerial photographic resources, their potential will be presented through two case studies – one documenting the damage to Montecassino during World War II, the other exploring the Roman city of Casinum.
