New Analysis About Archaeological Architecture (AA): Six Ancient Theatres of the Mediterranean Sea


The promotion and preservation of Cultural Heritage in the 21st century are inextricably bound up with innovative processes of acquisition, management and knowledge. Continuous technological progress and the digital revolution offer new tools and possibilities that can be applied to research. The development and enhancement of techniques for the mass acquisition and processing of this data creating 2D-3D models has made these processes fundamental to disseminating information on Architectural Archaeology. This paper describes the most recent results of the research activities originating from the Athena Project (Ancient Theatres Enhancement for New Actualities), which has entailed the study of six of the most famous Mediterranean Ancient Theatres: Mérida, Petra, Jerash, Carthage, Cherchell and Siracusa.
