    Web and multimedia businesses become nowadays not only a new opportunity, but also a necessity for the progress of the sector of communication and information in the world. The operation of these tools requires great professionalism, a good know-how, and a good entry opportunity. The key to the success of a multimedia project is the good management of the project while considering the financial constraints, deadlines, and resources available to implement the project. In order to focus on this concept. This project will allow us to achieve the knowledge and skills acquired. The main idea is the creation of a virtual showroom to give information and presenting high end cars so the creation of the project is accompanied by a 3-dimensional interactive tour of the exhibition hall modeled with 3Ds max and developed with Unity3D.

    Gli affari Web e multimediali diventano oggi non solo una nuova opportunità, ma anche una necessità per il progresso del settore della comunicazione e dell’informazione nel mondo. Il funzionamento di questi strumenti richiede una grande professionalità, un buon know-how e una buona opportunità di ingresso. La chiave del successo di un progetto multimediale è la buona gestione del progetto, considerando i vincoli finanziari, le scadenze e le risorse disponibili per implementare il progetto. Al fine di concentrarsi su questo concetto. Questo progetto ci consentirà di raggiungere le conoscenze e le competenze acquisite. L’idea principale è la creazione di uno showroom virtuale per dare informazioni e presentare vetture di alto livello in modo che la creazione del progetto sia accompagnata da un tour interattivo tridimensionale della sala espositiva modellata con 3Ds max e sviluppata con Unity3D

    General Introduction

    In a society that is increasingly concerned with research and the publication of information, the new communication and information technologies have invaded several economic and cultural sectors. Several national institutions and centres have adopted this new technological trend to make themselves known more easily by a large public. In fact, modeling, interactivity in 3d and the development of dynamic websites have greatly contributed to an exchange of information between Internet users and the institutions concerned. With a varied and precise information each user can not only have a clear idea about the association of 3d interactivity but also manipulates and uses the application that is made available to him.

    1. General context of the project:

    The professions of the web and multimedia become nowadays not only a new opportunity to seize but also a necessity for the progress of the sector of communication and information in the world. The exploitation of these trades requires a great professionalism, a good Know-how, and a good grasp of the opportunities. The key to the success of a multimedia project is the good management of the project while taking into account the financial constraints, the delays, and the resources available to set up the project. In order to emphasize this concept. We are oriented to carry out a professional project in the framework of Master of science in communication design Within the Politecnico Di Milano.

    2. Presentation of the Project:

    In this project we will allow the realization of the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired. The main activity of my project is the creation of a showroom MyAMG Specialized in the Presentation of cars MERCEDES AMG E63 2018. The creation


    of a virtual environment is accompanied A three-dimentional interactive tour of the showroom.
