The archaeologist Johannes Bergmann on 4 October in Piazza Armerina

The "archaeological survey" in the last twenty-five years has led to a new intensification of research on the landscapes of Sicily.

It is on these issues that the Archaeological Park of Morgantina and of the Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina, directed by the architect Liborio Calascibetta, has planned for Tuesday 4 October at 17:00, in the conference room of Palazzo Trigona, in Piazza Armerina, a meeting with Johannes Bergemann, professor of Classical Archeology at the University of Göttingen on “Landscape archeology in Sicily. Coastal and internal contexts in comparison ".

The group of prof. J. Bergemann, thanks to this methodological approach, has conducted surveys and projects in coastal areas, including Gela and Camarina, but also in the inland areas of the Sicani Mountains in the hinterland of Agrigento. The results led to a cultural definition of the areas of presence and influence of the Greeks who founded their cities on the coast, as well as of the indigenous peoples. Finally, the excavations, started following the preventive surveys, have provided new and greater results, often unexpected.

The works in the wake of the Sicilian heritage enhancement policy carried out in recent years by the regional councilor for cultural heritage and Sicilian identity, Alberto Samonà, will be introduced by the archaeologist of the Archaeological Park, Rosario Patané.

Johannes Bergemann is professor of Classical Archeology and Director of the Archaeological Institute of the University of Göttingen. For several years he has been operating in Sicily with surface archaeological investigations. He curated, together with Oscar Belvedere, an important international conference on Roman Sicily, whose proceedings were published in 2018.
