Abstract. This essay presents a proposal concerning the residential buildings of Giuseppe Terragni in the urban area of Como, based on the research activity which has been ongoing in the last few years and the related experiences which have been elaborated up to now to manage, represent and communicate the studies carried out. A new method of integration between research, communication and enhancement is presented with the aim to obtain a synthetic and immersive representation. Two case studies, in particular, are presented: the building for apartments Novocomum and “Case Popolari” in Via Anzani. The paper describes the methodology used, and its purpose, to create a virtual tour of the atrium of Novocomum and common areas of Case Popolari which allows the user to visit the spaces moving inside high definition full spherical immersive images and to consult punctual information referring to heterogeneous historical documents, providing a useful tool in order to study these architectures and contributing to the knowledge and enhancement of this architectural heritage.
