The American Academy in Rome will host a panel of the Associazione Internazionale di Archeologia Classica (AIAC), in that organization’s long-standing Incontri series. The theme will be Contatti e connettività nell’Italia imperiale (Contacts and Connectivity in Imperial Italy).

The speakers and their topics are:

  • James Page, British School at Rome, The AMINI Database: Preliminary Results from a Quantified, Synthetic Study of the Distribution and Consumption of Amphora-Borne Goods across Northern Italy
  • Mary-Evelyn Farrior (2024 Fellow), PhD Candidate, Department of Classical Studies, Columbia University, Understanding the Stations of the Sacra Via
  • Nicola Barbagli (2024 Italian Fellow), Universität Trier, The Pamphilj Obelisk: A Monument at the Crossroads of Cultures

Founded in Rome in 1945, AIAC aims to facilitate international collaboration among classical archaeologists through coordinating conferences and congresses of classical archeology. It also serves as the principal clearinghouse in Rome for information on archaeology-related scholarly events. AIAC publishes Fasti Online, the premier international database for archaeological excavations in thirteen countries in the territory of the former Roman Empire (including Italy), which in turn continues its print Fasti Archaeologici (published 1948–87). Since 2000, AIAC has organized a series of monthly Incontri in Rome, where young scholars from Italian universities and the many foreign institutes in the city can present their research.
