Vincenzo Capozzoli

I’am currently responsible for the digital Pole for archaeology and history of art at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where I have been working since 4 years with Alain Duplouy for a research project on ancient Lucania. During my PhD study between Italy and Germany, I worked on the archaic and classical topography of Athens and in particular on its city fortification system. I am convinced that in order to fully understand and appreciate the great epic of classical Athens we must go back to the starting point, to those space structuring processes that have been setting up during the pre-classical period. In 2015 with Anna Maria D’Onofrio, Annarita Doronzio (University of Naples, L’Orientale)and Alain Duplouy (Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) we have launched a partnership between the universities of Naples and Paris to develop together a new tool for the archaeology of pre-classical Athens : the Atlas of Athenian Funerary Evidence (11th-7th cent. B.C.). Since 2017 he is cooperating with N. Arvanitis in the Marie-Curie research project “Lands of Meaning“.
