Abstract. The restoration of the small cloister of the former monastery of Sant’Agostino, located in the upper town of Bergamo is the last act of the redevelopment of this important monumental site. During the work, several graves were found underground. The stone slabs that covered them show fragments of epigraphs allowing to date the structures for a period from the 14th to the 15th centuries which needed to be deepened. A knowledge project, specifically intended for the interpretation of the inscriptions was then initiated. To this end, an experiment was carried out, aiming to compare RTI photography and digital photogrammetry combined with the use of grazing light.
