This curriculum is aimed at the scientific progress in the study field of Etruscology, in the widest meaning of discipline focosing on the indigenous people of Pre-Roman Italy in the chronological range from the 10th to the 2nd-1st centuries BC. This field of study also wishes to strengthen investigation of Italian antiquities, according to the scholarly perspective started with the institution in 1925 of the subject Etruscology and Italic Archaeology as a distinguished teaching at Rome “La Sapienza” University, a discipline took over by Massimo Pallottino in 1945 and, from 1980, by Giovanni Colonna.
The PhD curriculum of Etruscology was started by M. Pallottino in 1983 (at that time being Prof. Emeritus), and it is up to now the only one in Italy (and abroad), specifically devoted to such field of studies, raising the general appreciation of the scientific community involved on antiquities PhD students admitted to classes come not only from “La Sapienza” itself, but also from several other Italian universities (Bologna, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Perugia, Salerno, Siena e Urbino), thus showing the “national” role achieved. The basic goal of this curriculum is to teach young scholars interested in Etruscan and Italic studies, both in methodology and research practice, in order to lead them to produce results so scientifically valid to be suitable to be published as a first step in their scholarly career, both in the University or in other research institutions.
