Tuscia: Itineraries in the archaeological and artistic heritage from the Etruscans to the present day

Viterbo, 25 luglio – 6 agosto 2022


The summer school Tuscia: Itineraries in the archaeological and artistic heritage from the Etruscans to the present day, is the result of a collaboration between the DISTU of the University of Tuscia and the University of Clermont-Auvergne -UFR Lettres, Culture et Sciences Humaines. Through a program of frontal lessons and field trips, the objective is to set up a course that aims at the knowledge of the cultural heritage of the area of Northern Latium. The territory of the Tuscia is in fact a widespread museum, rich in remarkable archaeological and historical-artistic remains, in which the diversified morphology of the stratifications links the past to the present. The program of lectures, held by professors of the University of Tuscia, offers participants knowledge in archaeology (from prehistory to the Middle Ages) and in monumental and artistic history of the region, an approach that is well suited to the interdisciplinary nature of the disciplines covered by the vast cultural heritage sector of the University of Viterbo. The vital relationship between the archaeological and historical-artistic disciplines and the objects of their study (understood in their material consistency) makes this project significantly different from the didactics normally taught in the classroom; for this reason, it can interest not only foreign students who want to know our territory, but also Italians, who will be able to know in person the excavations, the archaeological sites, the museums and the monuments, which up to now have been observed only through photographic reproductions.
