Abstract. The city of Rome looks like a succession of stratifications that have led to the formation of an architectural panorama that is unique in the world. The different eras and architectural styles that have defined the city in the two millennia of history make each of its parts unique. The punctual, areal and linear archaeological complexes unequivocally define the fabric of the city. The research investigates the theme of the analysis and representation of cultural heritage. It focuses on urban coexistences, not valued or in need of a new approach that modifies the way in which we relate. The research focuses on the way in which monumental archeologies interact with the contemporary urban fabric. The case study taken into consideration, to understand the archaeological survey methodologies for the digitization of cultural heritage, is the monumental complex of the Terme di Diocleziano in Rome. The ultimate goal is therefore to define an integrated survey methodology through which it is possible to set up a digital development work for archeologies. A development that is not limited to the two-dimensional representation of architecture but also three-dimensional, and informative at the model and geographic systems level.
