Our Goals

The languages of ancient Italy are documented almost exclusively in epigraphic texts; consequently, on the one hand, their linguistic framework is that of fragmentarily attested languages and, on the other hand, a specific method is required to analyse and edit these texts.

In this very particular situation, renewed processing of the texts using computational models and tools would make it possible to make available the data both within and beyond the limits of the specific relative discipline so that they could be exploited in an interdisciplinary perspective in the fields of history, archaeology, institutional history etc.

It is planned to combine the traditional method proper to historical linguistics and its products (study, edition and the linguistic, historical and cultural commentary on the texts) with the setting up of digital technologies.

This synergy between historical and digital linguistics, philology, and traditional and digital epigraphy will allow significant progress in analysis, interpretation, valorisation and diffusion of the results.
