What you'll do
We will go to the Villa of the Colonnacce, an important archaeological site just at the gates of Rome, to discover how the professional archaeologist works. Here we will begin with a guided tour of the site where we will learn about the daily life of the Romans to then instruct ourselves on the techniques used for intervention, in order to be prepared for the excavating experience. After a first digging session, we will take a break with a great homemade lunch, Italian style, enjoying the beautiful countryside scenery. We will then get back to work with a second digging session looking forward for the find of the day!
My name is Gianfranco Gazzetti, Inspector of the Sovrintendenza and President of the association Gruppo Archeologico Romano, I have always had a passion for archaeology that I want and love to transmit. On the day you will also be greeted by Daniele Buscella, manager and creator of the event, Claudio and Giulia, archaeologists.
