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 ASGLE and BES member Lorenzo Calvelli, tenured lecturer in Roman History and Latin Epigraphy at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. The project goals include: (1) the creation of an open-access online database of fake inscriptions called EDF (Epigraphic Database Falsae), (2) the organization of an international conference on epigraphic forgeries and the publication of its proceedings, and (3) the organization of two temporary exhibits in Venice and Rome. Project participants include scholars from the Universities of Venice, Rome, Bari, Genoa, Pisa, Macerata, Trieste, Milan, Verona, Turin, and Bologna. The project will last from February 2017 to January 2020. For further information, please contact
