Candidate's Profile and Current Research Interests
The specificity of candidate’s experience, matured in the framework of the “Roman School of
Italian antiquities and Ancient Topography” (University of Rome), is based on the capability to
combine the historical approach, founded on ancient sources, historical cartography and archive
research, based on her sound historical and philological formation, with the use of less traditional
instruments, as aerial photography, field survey and applied technologies. Her research started in
Etruria with a project of Landscape archaeology of the coastal territories of Tarquinia and Vulci
(Corsi 1993, 1998, 2000b), with focus on the transformation in the settlement patterns and the
resources exploitation system from Proto-History to Late Antiquity in Southern Etruria (Corsi 1998,
2000b, 2001, 2007c).
After a long experience at the Museum of Vulci, as responsible of the Catalogue Activities of the
project Arethusa, the candidate moved to other geographical contexts, still working on aspect of
settlement patterns in the longue durée approach (Southern Latium: Corsi - Polito - Persichini 2005,
Corsi 2006, 2007a, 2007b, Corsi - Polito 2008), developing a special interest and a specific
competence on ancient road networks, with a major contribution to scientific progress in the
specific study of the organization of transports and the infrastructures along the main Roman road
network in Italy (Corsi 2000a, 2000c, 2002, 2004, 2005a, 2005b, 2007c).
More recently, the applicant devoted herself to specific aspects of Romanization processes, in Italy
and in the western provinces, such as urbanism and town-planning transformation in deserted
Roman towns (Corsi - Vermeulen 2008, Corsi – Roblin-Jouve - Vermeulen 2009, Corsi - Venditti
2010, Corsi - Verdonck - Vermeulen 2010, Corsi 2012, forthcoming, Corsi – Vermeulen 2012a,
Corsi 2013a, Corsi 2014) and land divisions (Corsi 2008a, Corsi - Vermeulen 2010b). Parallel with
these, the applicant has been working intensely on methodological aspects of archaeological
mapping, the use of historical aerial photography for archaeology (Corsi - Vermeulen 2008, Corsi
2013a), GIS processing (Corsi 2005c, Corsi - Vermeulen 2007, Corsi 2008, Corsi - Vermeulen
2010b), and distinctively to integrated non-destructive approaches to complex archaeological sites
(for geophysics survey: Corsi - Verdonck - Vermeulen 2010, Corsi – Vermeulen – Verdonck 2010;
on integrated methodologies see: Corsi 2012, Vermeulen et Alii 2012. On results: Corsi –
Vermeulen 2012a). Methodologies and good practice in several fields of archaeological survey and
data interpretation and visualisation are the most recent interest, with the delineation of guidelines
(Vermeulen – Corsi 2013; Corsi - Slapsak – Vermeulen 2013).
Parallel with this, she has been published a volume (with E. De Minicis) presenting a 10 years
lasting research on the topographical aspects of the segment of the via Francigena north of Rome
(Corsi – De Minicis 2012). In the near future the candidate wishes to concentrate her research effort
further on Late Roman and Medieval road–networks and modalities of travel. With more research
about pilgrimage routes and medieval viability in Europe the candidate aims to analyse an ill-known
aspect of medieval topography, which is the road-system between the fall of the Roman Empire and
“road revolution” of the 13th c.
The variety of research themes approached, the wide range of research fields experienced, the
extensive national and international experience endured in professional and training activities, the
international mobility and the highest scores always reached in every education experience (from
high-school to PhD) surely demonstrate the applicant's attitude to contribute substantially to further
strive toward excellence in research and innovation.
Independent thinking and leadership qualities
Research activities and scientific production of the candidate have been always characterised by:
- a critical approach to consolidated but not tested traditions, often proven to be founded on
prejudices and superficial interpretation of ancient sources;
- a selection of geographic study areas normally neglected by scholars;
- specific attention to diachronic aspects of historical phenomena.
- sound methodology and definition of guidelines for good practice.
The skills in project management and the spirit of initiative can be proven by the list of candidate's
individually funded, current long term projects, which she directs or directed:
• Maritime Southern Etruria Survey: the Archaeological Map of the Etruscan coast from the rivers
Marta to Fiora (University “Sapienza” of Rome).
• The “Archaeological Map of Southern Inner Lazio”: GIS based project aiming to collect, process
and locate the data about the archaeological evidences in one area of Inner Southern Latium
(University of Cassino).
• The Road network in Southern Etruria from Etruscan times to the Middle Ages. This research
intends to tackle the analysis of road systems over the long term (collaboration universities of
Cassino, “Sapienza” of Rome and “Tuscia” of Viterbo).
