    La città multietnica nel mondo mediterraneo

    Storia, cultura, patrimonio

    This meeting aims to foster a discussion about the continuities and disruptions which have conditioned the multi-ethnic dimension of our cities. We would like to focus on the specificities of places and time in our millennial history that have produced both tangible and intangible cultural heritage (a heritage which today seems strongly under attack). We aim for a historical perspective –  by drawing attention on well-documented case-studies offering comparative insights – without however forgetting to ask ourselves the meaning of our research in the troubled world we live in; without anachronisms, but also without hiding behind the pretext of specialisms, while in front of our eyes the Mediterranean world is more than ever a theatre of death, exclusion, suffering.

    Il Laterizio nei cantieri imperiali — Roma ed il Mediterraneo

    Questo workshop intende promuovere il dibattito, su scala mediterranea, intorno al materiale di costruzione emblematico dell’architettura antica. Si tratterà in particolare di osservare come il laterizio abbia servito il potere imperiale, come abbia partecipato all’innovazione e alla trasmissione del sapere tecnico romano, come abbia influenzato e determinato l’organizzazione dei cantieri imperiali, com’è stato prodotto e diffuso attraverso l’Impero ed infine, come si è integrato nei processi di romanizzazione.
