Abstract. The urban archaeological remains, especially in cities like Milan, have a number of issues closely related to the preservation and maintenance of the characteristics of each site, but today these issues appear to be equally fundamental and strictly linked to the awareness and accessibility of this hidden heritage. As part of the “Mediolanum MMXV” project, it was possible to investigate these topics by approaching areas with different characteristics and developing actions that allowed the full knowledge of the current state of these historical artefacts, highlighting the main critical aspects. The consequent activation of coordinated actions of knowledge, through a combination of three-dimensional documentation methodologies, activities of promotion and communication of the different archaeological sites in the central areas of Milan has led to the creation of a network structure aimed at creating the basis for a wider project able to increase its usability and valorisation thanks to multimedia communication and interactive virtual representation systems.
