Previously coordinating fieldwork within the Bonorva archaeological project (SS, Sardinia; concluded in 2008), he currently collaborates to the excavations at the Bronze Age village at Broglio di Trebisacce (CS, Calabria) and at the village and cult place at Monte Cimino (VT, Latium). His research and publications currently focus on Nuragic archaeology and on alternative approaches to the study of prehistoric weight measures.

Description

The scrutiny of archaeological contexts suggests that there is substantial evidence that votive offerings in sanctuaries are generally composed by recurrent, somehow “codified” sets of symbolic objects. The analysis in this chapter attempts to relate symbols, in the form of ritually deposed objects and paraphernalia, to their wielders.
