The allegorical-narrative dimension theorized in “Architecture” of Antonio Averlino contains a lot of research ideas to examine, from the point of view of representation, the way of communicating the configuration of an ideal city. In the work, philosophical dissertations and technical aspects intersect in a narrative path marked by images. The objective of the work is to retrace the work by analyzing it through the drawing with three-dimensional study models that allow to explore, in the digital dimension, the places and architectures imagined by the author, his narrative and design paths underlying utopian visions and presumable reality, thus orienting the inventive to other possible images communicated with interactive representations.
