Discussant Mauro Menichetti

Fabio Colivicchi is Professor of Classical Archeology at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario (Canada), a university for which since 2011 he has directed an excavation project in the urban area of ​​Cerveteri. The research activity of Colivicchi, who is a member of the MeM doctorate college, includes studies on the organization of the territory and urban formation in the pre-Roman Italic world, in the Etruscan area and in the Greek-colonial one also in reference to Hellenization processes and Romanization. Equally important are the studies on material culture, in particular in relation to bronzes, alabaster, ivory and glass. The various lines of research come together in an exemplary way in the study dedicated to the necropolis of Ancona, between the 4th and 1st centuries BC, which manages to reconstruct an important context of the Adriatic area together with its wide and varied connections with the Italic, Etruscan-Roman and Greek-colonial world. The lesson entitled Adriatic Italy between Rome and the Hellenic world will be dedicated to the important contribution dedicated to the Adriatic area (discussant Mauro Menichetti).
