Abstract: In the painstaking effort aimed at defining standards for the inclusion of theoretical data in the VO by testing the compliance of as many simulation services as possible, some updates delivered by the Italian Theoretical Virtual Observatory (ITVO) project are presented. They include cosmological simulated data archive s and services (at Trieste and Catania Astronomical Observatories and at the CINECA supercomputing centre in Bologna) and stellar simulations data archive s and services (BaSTI, a Bag of Stellar Tracks and Isochrones, maintained at the Teramo Astronomical Observatory). Following an upgrade in BaSTI database and a new Web service endpoint for VisIVOweb in Trieste some improvements in data visualization are presented: from new plots for BaSTI tracks emphasizing star evolution’s key points to their comparison with observational data, from direct 3D visualization of galaxy clusters to their direct online data manipulation server side using the VO-compliant VisIVOWeb service. Finally we present a new unique Web portal for the ITVO project under, the Italian effort in the VO world, that collects all information regarding the various tokens of this theoretical virtual observatory project that are spread all over Italy.
