Research: The diffusion of augustea: from punctual analysis to the reconstruction of a complex phenomenon in Italy and provinces of Iberia

PhD student in Archaeology, Ancient Topography curriculum.

My research will be based on the identification, study and comparison of the buildings known as augustea. The main aim is to recognise the presence of specific architectural and topographical features that could confirm the function of the structures even when other material evidence is missing. At the same time a reconstructive hypothesis of the buildings of the forum will be digitally modelled for a specific case study -Rusellae- in order to proceed with analyses in order to understand the peculiar choices of orientation and location of the augusteum.
