Research project on epigraphic forgeries

The Italian Ministry of Education has recently funded a three-year National Research Project (PRIN) on fake Roman inscriptions. The Project, entitled “False testimonianze. Copie, contraffazioni, manipolazioni e abusi del documento epigrafico antico”, is led by AIEGL member Lorenzo Calvelli, tenured lecturer in Roman History and Latin Epigraphy at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

The project has 4 main goals: (1) to create an electronic archive of fake inscriptions called the EDF (Epigraphic Database Falsae); (2) to establish a regular schedule of work-in-progress meetings; (3) to organize an international conference on epigraphic forgeries whose proceedings will be published; and (4) to set up a temporary travelling exhibition dedicated to the subject. Project participants include scholars from the Universities of Bari, Bologna, Genoa, Macerata, Milan, Pisa, Rome, Trieste, Turin, Venice, and Verona with at least an additional five post-doctoral positions for young scholars. The project will last from February 2017 to January 2020.
