The fifth conference on Architectural Terracottas in Ancient Italy and beyond (Deliciae Fictiles V), will be held at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, 16-17 March 2018, to be followed by an excursion to Paestum 18 March.
Investigating craft communities, workshop organizations and networks has never been thoroughly undertaken for this period and region, nor for this exceptionally rich category of materials, or for the craftspeople producing the architectural terracottas. To understand roof production and construction in this period, to reveal relationships between main production centres, and to study the possible influences of immigrant craftspeople, a conference is needed that covers a wider area than Central Italy alone.
