This paper reports the experiences of the second edition of an international, educational programme named “SummerSchool 2011”. The Summer School 2011 was held by the Comitato Italiano Fotogrammetria Architettonica, in Italy. The main goals of that educational programe were: (a) to develop the thinking about the importance of cultural heritage preservation, (b) to emphasize the potential of application of LASER scanning techniques to the surveying of cultural heritage sites. The Summer School involved five professors and seventeen professionals and students not only from Italy (8), but also from Brazil (7), Turquey (2), Venezuela (2), and Romania (3). The technical backgrounds of the participants were the areas of remote sensing, architecture, digital photogrammetry, civil engineering, and surveying. The Summer School had an itinerant programe, starting from the city of Noci, located in Puglia, Southern Italy, and going down into the Puglia province, by visiting the community of Laterza, and the cities of Lecce and Bríndisi. The methodology for developing the technical and cultural programe was divided into three main parts: (a) a theoretical part held by technical presentations; (b) the “on-site” presentations and descriptions of the cultural and historical highlights of the objects of interest; (c) the demonstrations and controlled practice of LASER scanning surveying work. This paper also reports the results of the surveying of the following historical sites: (a) The “ Cantina Spagnola” cavern; (b) The “Tempio di San Giovanni al Sepolcro” site, a catholic church located in Brindisi, Italy. The most relevant conclusion of this multicultural, international programe was to spreading the thinking about cultural heritage inventory techniques, sought to be fundamental for maintaining the historical records of a country. In this direction, the Laboratory of photogrammetry of The Rio de Janeiro State University, in Brazil, has started a joint technical project with the Laboratory of Comitato Italiano Fotogrammetria Architettonica toward the surveying of two historical sites located in the State of Rio de Janeiro: (a) the ruins of a city in the southern part of the State, named “São João Marcos”; (b) the headquarters of the Rio de Janeiro State government, named the “Palácio da Guanabara”. The results of that international technical cooperation are also included.
