Abstract: Since the Middle Ages, perhaps even before, the questions related to the historical and cultural past, mainly to the level of archaeological findings, have exerted an enormous and mysterious allure on Man. Ever since then, Man has come up with methods and forms to recreate such places, in order to satisfy this recognized natural and ancestral curiosity associated to the human being. Mainly in these last few years, the rise in the number of projects involving this thematic (historical reconstruction), has been real and effective, due to two main factors: the increasing technological development that allows such designs to be accomplished more easily, with a larger impact, affecting a greater number of people; and the continuous and increasing interest of humanity in these questions related to its cultural and architectural patrimony. This is the reason that legitimises the work presented in this paper.
