The course aims to provide advanced training in the field of ancient topography. Training objective is the acquisition of a wide and qualified theoretical and practical knowledge of the latest research methodologies in relation to the topography of the classical world and high qualification in the field of the protection, conservation and enhancement of the archaeological heritage. Tools, objectives and methods of contemporary topographical research will be acquired by the maturation of humanistic skills and techniques related to the excavation, collection, processing and editing of data, surface reconnaissance, the cartographic bases and operating systems, preventive archeology. All of these skills will enable the achievement of a critical awareness of the scientific debate on the topography and the Greek and Roman ancient landscape, which will be known settlement programs, agricultural divisions, ramping water, road systems and infrastructure. The final objective will be the ability to decode the ancient landscape in all its components, identifying the semantic systems and coming, therefore, for the wise management of the contemporary landscape. The knowledge and learning skills acquired during the undergraduate program will be implemented through the delivery of specialized texts, including in foreign language, that will help develop and implement own ideas through the possible participation in initiatives aimed at knowledge of new paths research and mastery of the scientific debate on archaeological studies and disciplines applied to archeology. The student will be stressed, in this second level of study, a critical study of texts proposed for study, methodological approach to a more specialized towards the issues under study, the maturation of advanced skills related to the documentation and reading contexts archaeological, the appropriate communication of its powers, in coordination activities of small working groups, to a critical understanding of scientific texts specialized in foreign languages. It may, therefore, develop processing capabilities to enable it to continue, for the most part independently, studying archeology in a perspective linked, for example, a possible research activities or to further development of skills in the professional field research institutions and public and private institutions responsible for the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, namely universities, museums, archaeological superintendence, foundations, public and private institutions that govern the management of the landscape and managing excavation, archaeological teaching and museum exhibition.
