The authors introduce Virgilio, a system which supports the construction of non-immersive VR-based visualizations of complex data objects representing the result of a query performed on a multimedia database. Virgilio takes as input the dataset resulting from a query, on a generic database, displays attribute values of the dataset on virtual world objects according to the capability of these objects to represent the proper type of data, represents semantic relationships among the objects in the dataset using the containment relationship and creates a corresponding visual representation composed of a collection of virtual reality modeling language scenes
