OFFER DESCRIPTION

The project aims to produce a prosopography of the Greeks of Magna Graecia from the Archaic to the Classical age. The study will consider oecists, tyrants, legislators and philosophers who were active in central and southern Italy from the earliest colonial foundations and from the age of the “Aristocratic International” which, for a long time, contributed to keepalive the relations between Greece and the West. The main aim of the project is to analyse in a deep and systematic manner the phenomenon of ‘mobility’ and ‘human connectivity’ in the Mediterranean, including its corollary effects on a political, diplomatic and cultural level, both in the Greek ‘departure areas’ and in the Italía ‘arrival points’.
