The dissemination possibilities offered by digital technologies provide multiple ways of reading and fruition of the cultural heritage. In order to define a visualization and communication strategy through images, the paper shows some of the results of the ViC-CH Visual Culture and Cultural Heritage workshop, which involved the University of Trento and the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. The graphic elaborations focused on the Library of the Priest Seminar in Brixen; photomodelling, short films with drone shots and virtual visits have been some of the ways of manipulating the image for the animation and realistic visualization of a cultural heritage not easily accessible to date (The paper is to be attributed to Alessandro Luigini for paragraph 1, to Giovanna A. Massari for paragraph 2, to Starlight Vattano for paragraph 3, to Cristina Pellegatta for paragraph 4, and to Fabio Luce for paragraph 5).
