Beneath the modern city of Naples lie the partially hidden remains of a Roman theatre. It is a remarkable survival, but a complex site to understand. To unlock the theatre’s past, evidence from archaeological excavations is being used to create 3D models. These allow archaeologists to explore how the theatre was built and used. This ongoing project, being carried out by experts in Italy and Cyprus, tests how far we can reconstruct our heritage without straying too far from the archaeological record. Inspiring and guiding this debate is one of the core purposes of 3D-COFORM.


3D-COFORM promotes state-of-the-art 3D tools and expertise within the cultural heritage sector, and unites specialists from across Europe.
