Nothing 3D... only a simple illustration to commemorate this important event.

The Battle of the Milvian Bridge took place between the Roman Emperor Constantine I (272-337) and the usurper Maxentius (278 - 312) on 28 October 312. It takes its name from the Milvian Bridge, an important route over the Tiber. Constantine won the battle and started on the path that led him to become the sole ruler of the Roman Empire. Maxentius drowned in the Tiber during the battle.

According to chroniclers such as Eusebius of Caesarea and Lactantius, the battle marked the beginning of Constantine's conversion to Christianity. Eusebius of Caesarea recounts that Constantine and his soldiers had a vision of the Christian God promising victory if they daubed the sign of the Chi-Rho, the first two letters of Christ's name in Greek, on their shields. The Arch of Constantine, erected in celebration of the victory, certainly attributes Constantine's success to divine intervention.

In 313 Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, which proclaimed tolerance of all religions throughout the empire.

In 330 he founded the city of Constantinople (greek Byzantium), new capital of the Empire.

Happy to see you back again!
I thought about you in Vicenza last summer, this pleasant town located in northern Italy with many " Risorgimento" buildings, any of them particularly designed par Palladio.
What about your thesis?

Thank you to everyone and especially to Alain!
I completed the PhD thesis in May 2012... and now I'm making some promo and some public lecture in my town... with the hope to publish a booklet or CD-Rom in 2013.

You can see a video of the 3d model here:
