In recent years, digital technologies for enhancement and use of cultural heritage items has grown considerably. Multimedia, virtual and augmented reality and 3D reconstructions make it possible to bring the general public closer to an understanding of something that no longer exists or that is from a distant time. But digital tools can serve more than educational purposes.

To date, digitisation has become above all an essential tool in most cultural heritage projects involving conservation, restoration, documentation and research.

This article shows a process that integrates photogrammetry and structured light scans to obtain a 3D reconstruction of the Corsini Throne, preserved at the Corsini Gallery in Rome for its exhibition using a web application combined with semantic representation of metadata following FAIR principles. The process began during the development of the WeACT3 Project (Acting Together – Technology for Art, Culture, Tourism and Territory) jointly signed by the CIVITA Association, and the National Barberini and Corsini Galleries, collaborating in a partnership of several national and international enterprises. Within EcoDigit project, financed by Lazio Region, an automated web tool prototype was developed by ENEA. It is able to display 3D models with correlated scientific information to assist research activities and knowledge sharing.
