Abstract

The application of virtual reality to cultural heritage, environment, and landscape planning is extremely useful to experiment various scenarios which could not be necessarily realised in the real world; both for educational and research purposes. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how 3D representations can be utilised as a valid support for urban planners and designers in order to verify beforehand a variety of interventions or modifications for a particular area, and to establish the best strategy in order for the later to be reclaimed and re-qualified. We describe a research project concerning the colour planning in urban environment, held in cooperation with the urban furniture department of Milan City Council; the main goal was to collect the chromatic data of urban furniture inside a sample area in the historical centre of Milan and to use virtual reality to evaluate the proposed actions. In order to verify the aforementioned process, we have decided to create a model of Piazza Cordusio which is situated in the historical centre of Milan
