Abstract

New research activities are being promoted by the Archaeological Park of Agrigento with contributions from several Italian universities as well as from other countries. The archaeological investigation of the so-called upper Agorà, directed by Bari’s Politecnico and University of Catania, consists of rebuilding the architecture that once characterised the ancient urban landscape of this area. E. Brienza and M. Liuzzo, from Enna’s Kore University, have focused their collaborative efforts on a new analysis of evidence linked to the ancient street patterns. Through this collaboration, a new image of Agrigento’s planning scheme has been produced that is quite different from the previously suggested one by Griffo and Schmidt in 1958.
