Main research activities

THE SHAPES OF DWELLING IN GREEK SICILY: The research is connected to a new agreement signed in 2016 with the Archaeological Park "Valley of the Temples" in Agrigento. The Project ("Agrigento. Insula III") after having investigated with the most modern technologies the living structures of insula III of the so-called. Hellenistic-Roman quarter, it is now proceeding with the systematic excavation of a coherent context. In this regard, it has chosen to investigate House III M, which represents an excellent example of a 'pastas' house built between the end of the 3rd century and the beginning of the 2nd century B.C., precisely at the beginning of Rome's rule on the island.

PARIETAL PAINTINGS OF THE HELLENIC AND ROMAN AGES: The research is connected with two archaeological excavations conducted by the lecturer, the first in Suasa, in the Marche region, and the second in Agrigento, within the Archaeological and Landscape Park 'Valley of the Temples' in Agrigento. The excavation in Suasa began in 1988 inside the domus dei Coiedii, and has yielded an enormous amount of wall plaster and stucco work, spanning from the 3rd century BC to the 3rd century AD. Then, in 2017, a second excavation was initiated inside a dwelling in the Hellenistic-Roman Quarter of Agrigento, which returned a further nucleus of painted plasterwork and moulded stucco. An integrated research has emerged, which refers to the main problems related to the stylistic and formal aspects of painting technique, installation technology, recovery methodology and graphic recomposition, restoration and exhibition problems. Some of the recovered and restored materials have been exhibited in the 'A. Casagrande' Archaeological Museum in Castelleone di Suasa (An) and in the 'Pietro Griffo' Regional Museum in Agrigento.

EXCAVATIONS, RESEARCH AND RESTORATIONS IN THE CITY OF PHOINIKE (CAONIA - EPIRUS): the project was initiated in 2000 as a continuation of the excavations conducted by LUigi Maria Ugolini between 1926 and 1927 on the Phoinike hill in Caonia, the northernmost region of ancient Epirus (today in southern Albania). The investigations took place in different areas of the ancient city, in order to investigate the origin and development of this important urban centre, where, among other things, the famous peace that ended the First Macedonian War was signed. Since the first year, the excavations, co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Italian Republic, have been accompanied by an important action of conservation and restoration of the monuments and archaeological materials, as well as by an equally important training activity for Italian and Albanian students. Go to the site.

: The research is connected with the excavation and study of the Hellenistic-Roman city necropolis of Phoinike (Albania), which began in 2001 and is still ongoing. The research, conducted through the analysis and study of the main technical and symbolic aspects of ancient ritual related to death, has resulted in a monograph (Lepore, Muka 2018) and an International Congress, held in Tirana in 2019 (Lepore, Muka 2020). Visit the website.

: this research complements and completes the knowledge of the context in which the Roman city of Suasa (between the provinces of Pesaro and Ancona) arose. This study, extended to the late antique and early medieval phases of the territory, has led to an archaeological investigation, conducted by the writer, in the church of the Madonna del Piano (formerly S. Maria in Portuno) in Corinaldo (AN). The archaeological investigations were conducted for 10 consecutive years (2001-2011). Visit the website.

ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE PROVINCE: This research completes the investigations begun in the Balkan area (Albania) with a series of studies conducted in the Croatian area. In fact, it concerns the study and publication of the pictorial decoration of the Augusteum in Narona (Croatia) and the paintings of the Late Antique site of Bare (Croatia), as part of an international work project in collaboration with the Museum of Split. Also in Croatia, the 'Burnum Project' was initiated in 2005 in cooperation with the University of Zadar and the Archaeological Museum of Drns, with the aim of applying non-intrusive archaeological investigations to an ancient site (the Roman castrum of Burnum) before proceeding with the actual excavation. Completing the 'Mediterranean' framework of research is the joint mission (2001 and 2002) between the Universities of Bologna and Lecce to research, study and survey the Hellenistic Roman site of Soknopaiounesos (Fayyum, Egypt).

ROMANISATION OF THE AGER GALLICUS: The new research topic is connected to the multi-year project 'Urban Archaeology in Senigallia', which was signed in 2010 and provides for an agreement between the Municipality of Senigallia, the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of the Marche Region and the Department of Archaeology of the University of Bologna (now Disci). All research activities are based not only on traditional archaeological research methods (archive surveys, cellar reconnaissance, updating of the Archaeological Map and Potential Map), but also on the systematic application of non-intrusive geophysical surveys, thanks to the contribution of the Disci Geophysics Laboratory of the University of Bologna.
