Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The work we present is inspired by the results of an architectural survey that was carried out on thearchitectural remains of the Roman Amphitheater of Termini Imerese, in order to its possible conjectural reconfiguration andthree-dimensional remodeling in a VRML or augmented-reality context. All this has been thought to benefit the developmentof cultural and archaeological tourism in the site itself. The approach to the site and to the ancient building has, however, focusedon urban and territorial analysis since the first inspections, considering mainly the peculiarities that distinguish the historical/ architectural vicissitudes of the site. In the Medieval Age the Jewish Quarter was indeed set up above the ancient amphitheaterretracing its shape, and this fact led to the radical mutation of an isolated architectural event in a structured urban event in thecity context. Even this transformation has, however, been lost throughout the ages.
