A team of archaeologists, acting within the program of the Harmonia 10 Program (National Science Centre), under the direction of dr. hab. Tadeusz Baranowski from the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences – Interdisciplinary Archaeological Research Department (Warsaw), pursues the project: Ammuriana – Murano Island in the light of excavations / Isola di Murano alla luce degli scavi.
A group of researchers gathered around prof. dr. Sauro Gelichi from the prestigious Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, working in cooperation with Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, are partners of the Polish team. The main goal is to analyze the results of the Polish-Italian archaeological excavations from the eighties of the 20th century regarding the famous (from the glass art) Venetian island Murano and performed in front of the façade of mediaeval Basilica Santa Maria e Donato, on the site of the early and late Middle Ages.
Scientists of various specializations guarantee an interdisciplinary perspective while dealing with the past of Venice. Their knowledge crops from a sight through the prism of the region, which is important for the community of the Venetian Lagoon. In addition to publications of a book and articles, plans include preparation of an exhibition which would present the fascinating fate of the inhabitants in a natural environment: beautiful but difficult to settle. The result of the cooperation will be in the first line a publication in two languages: Polish and Italian.
