Research: The necropolis of Granarolo dell'Emilia (BO) within the context of Eastern Bolognese Villanovan culture: a study of funerary ritual within and outside the burials.

PhD student in Etruscology
My research focuses on a Villanovian necropolis located in Granarolo dell'Emilia (BO), with a particular emphasis on collective funerary ritual and the theme of both animal and bloodless sacrifices within its practice

Prior to my doctoral studies, I obtained a Specialization Degree in Archaeological Heritage and a Master's degree at the University of Bologna. For both the Specialization Degree and the Master's Degree, my theses focused on Etruscan epigraphy within sacred contexts, exploring the insights ancient inscriptions can provide regarding ritual practices. I also hold a Bachelor's Degree from L'Orientale di Napoli University, where my thesis investigated harbors structures in Magna Graecia.
During the years of my training, I had the opportunity to participate in various capacities in university excavation campaigns, both abroad and in Italy.

In addition to my academic pursuits, I have gained practical experience as an archaeologist participating in emergency excavations. These experiences have honed my fieldwork skills, artifact documentation abilities, and data analysis expertise. Furthermore, I had the privilege of working with the Archaeological Civic Museum of Bologna both in the organization of archaeological exhibitions and as a tour guide.
