Agnese Livia Fischetti is a non resident fellow of the KNIR from February till November 2016. She works on a PhD project titled “Ciampino: la località Marcandreola e la via Castrimeniense” at the University of Groningen (GIA). This project studies human habitation and the development of the territory of Ciampino in the Roman Republican period. In particular, the research focuses on an ancient road called the via Castrimeniense and on the sites it connected. The PhD research will result in a monograph on the ancient topography of the Ciampino area and on the material culture (in particular middle-republican ceramics) collected during recent archaeological excavations.
