Dissemination & Promotion

Since its establishment, the Pietragalla Project, has been dedicated to disseminating and promoting scientific research and raising awareness to the general public. The communication of the project was made through traditional scientific methods, conferences and international talks, but also by exploiting new communication routes, like social media and web portals. The already mentioned exhibit perfectly embodied this ambition. Indeed, a dedicated free Android app was developed by Michele Garramone thanks to which everyone can freely enjoy the contents of the exhibition.

In the framework of the international conference “La Lucanie entre deux meres: archéologie et patrimoine” organized by the research team of the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne “Lucanie antique: archéologie et patrimoine” in November 2015, the archaeological site of Monte Torretta was presented to the scientific community. Through a poster reviewing the rescue archaeology operations made in 2012 (image 7), the general archaeological features of the site were displayed, while the documentary work of the Pietragalla Project was exposed by an intervention about the architectural terracotta stored in the Museo Archeologico Provinciale di Potenza.

The Pietragalla Project joined the 57th and 58th International Conference of Studies on Magna Graecia organized by ISAMG in Taranto. In this international context, in which the most recent developments in the archaeological research of the south Italian pre-roman world are displayed, the Pietragalla Project was presented. The ambitions of the project have been promoted, in particular, the developments and the results of the activities carried out during 2017 and 2018 on the site of Monte Torretta, showing the potential of a new and modern archaeological investigation.
The commitment of the Pietragalla Project towards the dissemination and promotion of archaeology has been confirmed in the event “tourismA – Salone dell’Archeologia e del Turismo Culturale 2019″ in which he participated by presenting its program and commitment to cultural tourism.
