Gruppi Archeologici d'Italia

Regional archaeological units coordinate 2-week digs in Italy.

Rediscover the historical memory of our civilization. Participate in an engaging and educational work session. Experience the realization of an archaeological excavation, the documentation and restoration of the finds and monumental evidence, the topographical investigation of a territory, the design and the museographic setting of a monumental area. Deepen your historical and artistic knowledge by participating in seminars, conferences, visits to museums and archaeological areas.

These are the experiences that hundreds of Italian and foreign volunteers live each year by joining the summer research and development campaigns of the Archaeological Groups of Italy. To participate you do not need to be an expert in the field, nor be in possession of specific knowledge in the archaeological field: it is sufficient to be prepared to work in a group and to spend an enjoyable period of life in common.

The archaeological research fields are held during the summer under the aegis of the Archaeological Groups of Italy, in places located mostly in an area with a glorious past and yet still partly unknown: Etruria.

The archaeological fields are excavation sites (directed by members of the GA of Italy under the supervision of the Superintendencies) open to anyone who is interested in the human past and intends to make his active contribution to scientific progress and the enhancement of historical and artistic heritage Italian. Participants are always supported by team leaders who follow them in all the activities of the camp. Of course, free time is not missing. Socialization is one of the strengths of the archaeological fields: you have the opportunity to meet people from all over Italy and from abroad to share all together the profound fascination of Archeology. Participation in the research fields gives the right to a formative credit certificate.
