Hi! I am Luigi, an Archaeology student from University of Ferrara. Since 2011 I am a member of Suliis As Torc, a living history and experimental archeology association, working on the 2nd Iron Age in Northen Italy and Balearic culture during the second punic war.
Education, teaching & training
I am an archaeologist working at Fondazione Museo Civico di Rovereto. My research activity focuses on Bronze Age in Trentino, whereas my initiatives of science outreach, teaching and practicals focus primarily on educating the general public to the prehistoric era.
I am a research assistant at the German Archaeological Institute. Currently I am writing my PhD on “Ancient Near Eastern Amulets“ at Freie Universität Berlin (DE). Since several years I am giving workshops on gruitbeer and mead production at Museumsdorf Düppel.
I am involved in community archaeological excavation projects as well as experimental archaeology mostly based on the early medieval period. I also organise living history courses in Viking Age metalwork techniques.
I teach Medieval Archaeology and I make research from 1986. I am very interested to experimental, archaeometric and public experience in archaeology.
PhD in medieval archaeology since 2011. 18 years experience in various archaeological fieldwork: necropolises, churches. My present project is to create an archaeopark in the ASTRA Open-Air Museum from Sibiu, Romania.
My interest in experimental archaeology started at the age of seventeen when I entered the re-enactment world. It was at the meeting point of both my passions for archaeology and craft.
