IndaginiXImmagini, archaeology on display in Padua
A photo exhibition was inaugurated in Padua which presents to the public the first results of STEMPA - Excavation, remote sensing, study of materials and landscape of the Asiago plateau.
This large and complex didactic excavation project was conducted on the Vicenza ‘Sette Comuni’ plateau, and, in particular, in the pre-Roman village of Bostel di Rotzo.
Archaeologists from University of Padua carried out this innovative project by combining cutting-edge remote sensing technologies with traditional excavation techniques, setting up a photography exhibition that can be visited, by advance booking, at Palazzo Liviano until 1 June 2018.
The exhibition, curated by Cinzia Bettineschi, starts with a panel that tells the story of the Bostel site through studies conducted since 1781 by Abbot Agostino Dal Pozzo, including the 1912 excavation, the 1969 archaeological campaign and the activities carried out by the University of Padua in 1993.
The exhibition illustrates the design activities, giving visibility and practical effect to the Geographic Information System (GIS), which provides information on the archaeological layers and their relationships, the materials found and, in general, on the geographic context of the area examined.
Curator Cinzia Bettineschi commented: “We chose to propose a dynamic set-up to be able to make changes today, but also in the future, to present the results achieved over time”.
