The research is an analysis of the recording, reconstruction and visualisation of the 3D data of a XVIII century watermill, identified in
an emergency archaeological excavation during the construction of the mini-hydroelectric plant on the bank of the Adda river in the
municipality of Pizzighettone (Cremona, Lombardy, Italy).
The work examines the use and the potentials of modern digital 3D modelling techniques applied to archaeological heritage aimed to
increase the research, maintenance and presentation with interactive products. The use of three-dimensional models managed through
AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) technologies with mobile devices gives several opportunities in the field of study
and communication. It also improves on-site exploration of the landscape, enhancing the “minor” archaeological sites, daily subjected
to numerous emergency works and facilitating the understanding of heritage sites.
