Hi Franco,

here is an example where the z-value is color coded:

ParametricPlot3D[{{4 + (3 + Cos[v]) Sin[u], 4 + (3 + Cos[v]) Cos[u],

    4 + Sin[v]}}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}, {v, 0, 2 Pi},

  ColorFunction -> Function[{x, y, z}, Hue[z]]]



her another one where the distance from the origin defines the color:

ParametricPlot3D[{{4 + (3 + Cos[v]) Sin[u], 4 + (3 + Cos[v]) Cos[u],

    4 + Sin[v]}}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}, {v, 0, 2 Pi},

  ColorFunction -> Function[{x, y, z}, Hue[Norm[{x, y, z}]]]]



hope this helps, Daniel
