This Symposium aims to disseminate in the Brazilian academic environment recent archaeological research carried out in Sicily; to create a dialogue between the Brazilian Academy’s studies and those conducted abroad; to compare research approaches and methods related to different historical periods and discuss their issues.

We believe that the creation of a direct contact between internationally renowned specialists and representatives from foreign institutions active in archaeological research of and in Sicily can feed new research and new approaches in the study of the ancient world involving Sicily and the Mediterranean Archeology.
