Abstract. The research proposes the study of the Royal Park of Tirana in Albania, with particular reference both to the vegetation system, such as tree-lined avenues, ornamental gardens and vegetable gardens, and to the architectural elements such as the Villa, the Church, the gardener's house, the generator house and greenhouses. The few iconographic documents consist of the plans of the Grand Park of Tirana in 1957 and 1980, where some large buildings can be identified. The bibliography is relegated to the few citations found in the volumes illustrating the works of the two architects G. Bosio and G. Bertè. For the activities of knowledge of the Royal Park and of the architectural elements, in addition to the classical techniques of direct and indirect survey, we took into account the Ryobi laser instrumentation applied on portable computer support both tablets and smartphone. This digital system allows an immediate view of the relevant data on the photographic image taken by the support, transforming it into a dynamic datum. In the first phase, the relevant activity envisaged a basic knowledge extended to architectural organisms and green systems with a primitive geometric model; subsequently, measurements of architectural details, structures and the digital model were made. Appropriate photographic documentation was produced in addition to bibliographic, archival, and iconographic surveys.
