The Roman and Latin colonies characterised the Roman conquest of the Italic peninsula. The Middle Adriatic area saw a considerable increase in urban centres during the Roman period as well. However, many of these towns were not new colonies, but rather the result of a more complex urban development. Sanctuaries, minor settlements, and allied cities were also part of this process. Some case studies, such as the Sanctuary of Monte Rinaldo, the Municipium of Suasa, and the Picenum town of Asculum, part of ongoing research projects of the University of Bologna also in collaboration with the BSR, will be discussed as representative of this process.

It would be very helpful if you would book in advance, particularly in case any changes need to be made to arrangements.
