I am one of the designer of the 3D Heritage Online Presenter (3DHOP), an open-source software package for the creation of interactive Web presentation of high-resolution 3D model, oriented to the Cultural Heritage field.

MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of models coming from 3D scanning. It provides a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this type of models. As many others people, I collaborated in the development of some of its parts (sampling module, ambient occlusion calculation, some shaders, etc).

I was an architect of RTIViewer, a tool for the advanced visualization of relightable images (e.g. polynomial texture maps). You can find more information about it and about relightable images on the web site of Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI), a californian non-profit corporation devoted to spread advanced technologies for Cultural Heritage applications.

ArtShop is an image editing tool for the virtual restoration of artworks. I developed it during my PhD studies for the Laboratorio Comunicazioni ed Immagini (LCI) of the University of Florence. Artshop includes a color calibration tool, a cracks identification and removal tool, and special area filling tools to simulate the restoration work.
Automatic Plate Recognition System

During my studies I partecipate in the development of a tool for the segmentation and recognition of licence plate using neural networks (auto-encoders). This software, that is property of the Autostrade S.r.L. (the italian company who manages italian highways), has been part of the Telepass system, the system, for the automatic control of the highways' access, for many years.
