The specificity of candidate’s experience, matured in the framework of the “Roman School of Ancient Topography” (University Sapienza of Rome), is based on the capability to combine the historical approach, founded on ancient sources, historical cartography and archive research, based on her sound historical and philological formation, with the use of less traditional instruments, as aerial photography, field survey and applied technologies. Her research started in Etruria with a project of Landscape archaeology of the coastal territories of Tarquinia and Vulci (Corsi 1993, 1998, 2000b), with focus on the transformation in the settlement patterns and the resources exploitation system from Proto-History to Late Antiquity in Southern Etruria (Corsi 1998, 2000b, 2001, 2007c).
After a long experience at the Museum of Vulci, as responsible of the Catalogue Activities of the project Arethusa, the candidate moved to other geographical contexts, still working on aspect of settlement patterns in the longue durée approach (Southern Latium: Corsi - Polito - Persichini 2005, Corsi 2006, 2007a, 2007b, Corsi - Polito 2008). She also developed a special interest and a specific competence on ancient road networks, with a major contribution to scientific progress in the specific study of the organization of transports and the infrastructures along the main Roman road network in Italy and about some technical aspects of the journey in the course of Roman, Late Antique and Medieval Ages (Corsi 2000a, 2000c, 2002, 2004, 2005a, 2007c, forthcoming c).
More recently, the applicant devoted herself to specific aspects of Romanization processes, in Italy and in the western provinces, such as urbanism and town-planning transformation in deserted Roman towns (Corsi – Roblin-Jouve - Vermeulen 2009, Corsi - Venditti 2010, Corsi - Verdonck - Vermeulen 2010, Corsi 2012a, Corsi – Vermeulen 2012a, Corsi 2013a, 2013b, 2014a, Corsi – Vermeulen 2015) and land divisions (Corsi 2008a, Corsi - Vermeulen 2010b), with a specific interest for methodological aspects of research (Corsi - Vermeulen 2008, Corsi 2013a, Corsi forthcoming b).
A culmination of her 6 years long direction of research activities and fieldwork at the Roman town of Ammaia, she published the volume reporting about the old and recent excavations (Corsi 2014).
Parallel with these, the applicant has been working intensely on methodological aspects of archaeological mapping, the use of historical aerial photography for archaeology (Corsi - Vermeulen 2008, Corsi 2013a), GIS processing (Corsi 2005b, Corsi - Vermeulen 2007, Corsi 2008, Corsi - Vermeulen 2010b), and distinctively to integrated non-destructive approaches to complex archaeological sites (for geophysics survey: Corsi - Verdonck - Vermeulen 2010, Corsi – Vermeulen – Verdonck 2010; on integrated methodologies see: Corsi 2012a, 2012c, forthcoming e; Vermeulen et alii 2012. On results: Corsi – Vermeulen 2012a). Methodologies and good practice in several fields of archaeological survey and data interpretation and visualisation are the most recent interest, with the delineation of guidelines (Vermeulen – Corsi 2013, 2015; Corsi - Slapsak – Vermeulen 2013).
Most recently she investigated theoretical issues and methodological aspects of Landscape Archaeology (Corsi 2015; Corsi 2016, forthcoming a), and she edited with Francesca Carboni the proceeding of the session 3 of the III Landscape Archaeology Conference (Rome 2014) devoted to Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages (Carboni – Corsi forthcoming).
Parallel with this, she has been published a volume (with E. De Minicis) presenting a 10 years lasting research on the topographical aspects of the segment of the via Francigena north of Rome (Corsi – De Minicis 2012). In the near future the candidate wishes to concentrate her research effort further on Late Roman and Medieval road–networks and modalities of travel. With more research about pilgrimage routes and medieval viability in Europe the candidate aims to analyse an ill-known aspect of medieval topography, which is the road-system between the fall of the Roman Empire and “road revolution” of the 13th c.
