In this paper, a new approach for the virtual modeling and reconstruction of Architectural Heritage is presented. The graphic and semantic information required to determine the conservation status of the analyzed buildings, obtained from point clouds and historical and bibliographical data, are combined. The modeled components are used to create a library of parametric elements under the concept of Heritage Building Information Modeling (HBIM). This represents a solution for the 3D modeling of a wide range of buildings in the same style, due to the flexibility of the modeled elements which can change in shape and proportions, thus adapting to new requirements. Moreover, technical documentation and quantitative and qualitative information can be produced, allowing detailed analysis in a remote and multidisciplinary way within the general framework of "Smart heritage".

Keywords: BIM, cultural heritage documentation, 3D, Graphic/semantic documentation, HBIM, Smart heritage.
