Pietro Maria MILITELLO

Full Professor of Aegean civilizations [L-FIL-LET/01]

I am a professor of archaeology, working at the University since 1993, first as a researcher, than as associate professor, finally (since 2016) as full professor. My specific focus of research is the prehistoric Aegean, and Crete in particular, prehistoric Sicily and public archaeology. On the field I am active in Greece, at Phaistos, and in Sicily, at Calaforno, Calicantone, Pantalica, Molona (together with the superintendency of Ragusa, Siracusa and Catania).

I was leader of many national and international projects aimed at research activities (Programs Interreg, Cost etc.), teaching activities (Cooperlink), and dissemination (program Tempus, etc.).
