Abstract

The study is focused on the Greek Theatre of Akrai which was built during the III century BC together with the adjoining Bouleuterion. It was then uncovered by G. Iudica during the XIX century. The monument lies within the ancient area of Akrai (SR), that today is an archaeological site that extends for nearly 35 hectares with an elevation of 770 m. Following the three-dimensional survey, carried out with 3D laser scanner and GPS positioning, the study was organised into three different levels of analysis: the link between the archaeological site and the surrounding territory, the relationship between the monument with the surrounding landscape and the study of its geometric, architectonic and materialistic components that have been modified throughout the centuries.
