A new set of synthetic models of stellar populations is presented. Evolutionary synthesis has been performed for a variety of chemical compositions and initial mass functions in an age range from 4 to 18 Gyrs. Important refinements have been introduced in respect to previous works such as the full treatment of post Main Sequence stellar evolution, through Horizontal Branch, Asympthotic Giant Branch and Planetary Nebula phases. As a check of the reliability of the computational approach an application to the globular cluster M3 is made and further extensions to the extragalactic domain are suggested concerning the study of the evolution of the galaxies in the cosmological framework.
