In some cases, the digital model is an effective solution to the foreshadowing of projects never realized, or for the virtual anastylosis of lost buildings; the scientific validity of such models is closely linked to the consistency of the reconstruction methods used, a systematic use of documentary sources and validation of previous hypothetical reconstructions.
