Today, 3D modeling allows the creation of sophisticated reconstructions in the field of Paleontology that until a short time ago could only be obtained with traditional techniques and hand-made drawings. An interesting methodological application is the Museum of Casal de’ Pazzi in Rome. In this case 3D modeling has allowed the reconstruction, starting from the discovery of some finds, an “Ancient Elephant,” a “Urus,” and a “Neanderthal Man”. Modeling was performed with the help of scientific data and experienced paleontologists and anthropologists. 3D models were completed with the “digital sculpting” technique, allowing a more accurate reconstruction of the shape and appearance of the animals and hominin. The models were subsequently used for multimedia and interactive communication, describing the history of the place where the Museum is located.
