com.Hera is a project promoted by the Regional Province of Agrigento that was assigned to Graham e associati of Palermo by an official mandate approved by the council. The project aims to create a multimedia and interactive instrument on DVD-ROM for Personal Computer, created and developed by Altair 4 Multimedia of Rome, regarding the cultural enhancement of Agrigento province, with a particular attention to the ancient sites of Herakleia Minoa and Agrigento (Akragas). Both of them have been the heart of one of the most ancient and fully-developed civilization within the Mediterranean area. Their history is particularly suitable for multimedia enhancement: wonderful geographical position; importance of the cities in the development of territory; relationships with other Mediterranean civilizations of which Agrigento was the most important one as cultural and commercial crossroads; achievement of an own cultural identity which greatly influenced other cultures.

Architectonic settings, historical events, everyday life scenes and various social, economic and political aspects have been reconstructed and explained using ancient historical sources and memories of famous travellers of the past.
Realized in collaboration with the Soprintendenza archeologica di Agrigento, Ente Parco della Valle dei Templi di Agrigento, Museo Archeologico Regionale di Agrigento.
