The design of virtual tools allows to create new ways of fruition in the immaterial web dimension, and to apply multimedia languages in real cultural sites.The historical investigation, instrumental geometrical survey and restitution with spherical photos carried out in the Sanctuary of Santa Maria in San Celso in Milan is described. Aim of the research was the enhancement of an artistic heritage often not sufficiently known, in the belief that three-dimensional reconstructions are now an essential tool of technical-scientific knowledge as well as an attractive form of visualization and dissemination to the public.
