Starting from the work with the ESO/VLT VIMOS spectrograph, we have developed a spectroscopic
pipeline that has been used to reduce data from many spectroscopic surveys (VVDS, zCOSMOS,
VIPERS, VANDELS). This software was then used to create the pipelines used by the LBT Data
Reduction Center, to reduce spectroscopic data obtained with the LUCI and MODS instruments at
LBT, and we are preparing a public release for these pipelines, that can become the starting point
for a general purpose spectroscopic pipeline, at least for long-slit and MOS data.
