"Da Edessa a internet: venti secoli (e mezzo) di scrittura siriaca"
Abstract La scrittura siriaca è ininterrottamente attestata dal I secolo dell’era cristiana e probabilmente vide la luce, come la lingua che essa esprime, nell’area di Edessa, la moderna Şanlıurfa . In questo incontro ne ripercorreremo la storia, soffermandoci in particolare sui ricchissimi sviluppi dell’ultimo decennio nell’ambito delle risorse elettroniche per lo studio della cultura e della scrittura siriache.

The beta version of the digital paleography portal AKU-PAL: Paläographie des Hieratischen und der Kursivhieroglyphen, part of the Ancient

Giulia Torri’s research focuses on a collection of Hittite texts discovered during the first excavations in Lower City of Ḫattuša when, in 1907, a palace, later named Haus am Hang (House on the Slope), was discovered.
The research reconstructs the archaeological context and provides a new approach in outlining the cultural environment in which the Hittite texts were produced. The texts, classified according to their content as administrative texts, chancellery texts, and texts of the scribal tradition, are collected, studied, and compared with their duplicate versions from other locations, with the aim of showing how the Hittite scribes composed and preserved them.

SELECT is an Erasmus+ project aimed at supporting the study of ancient history and geography throught a friendly multidisciplinary self learning tool which is an atlas on the cultures in ancient Europe before romanization. The ancient populations outside the Greek-Roman world, are the « minorities of the past », whose heritage is often neglected in the school system. ATLAS will give to European citizens (but not only) an overview on the most ancient European civilizations, that will be summerized on a map, a powerful visual tool fot the knowledge of the past. The project is carried on in cooperation with a few European universities and with scholars from Spain, Finland, France, Italy and Poland.
