Understanding humankind through material culture

Nothing can be considered more narrative than material culture: carefully framed in its historical and social background, material culture can literally speak and tell the story of ancient societies, helping to understand the relationships between people and their things. In order for human products to speak, archeology and archaeometry must be in perfect synergy.

Since 2012 I have been collaborating with dr. Sara Fiorentino on the study of production technologies and their evolution through the ages, with a specific interest on pre-industrial glass manufacturing of Mediterranean and eastern area.

Four main thematic areas of research are pursued, aimed at studying and characterising glass production technologies:

  • linked to everyday life (vessels, objects, instrumenta, etc.)
  • dedicated to building decoration (mosaic tesserae, glass windows, etc.)
  • by the investigation of waste and production indicators
  • through the study of degradation phenomena and morphologies
