PhD in Earth
Sciences, researcher at the C.N.R. - IDPA. He is interested in Quaternary
climate history, with special reference to the use of plants as
ecological and palaeoclimatic
proxies, and the human impact on the environment.

PhD in Geological
Sciences and Geotechnologies at the University of Milano –
Bicocca, researcher at C.N.R. - IDPA, focused on the
palynostratigraphy of Plio-Pleistocene series from the Po Basin (Leffe,
cores CARG Regione Lombardia and Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lake Fimon,
etc.). She analyzes lacustrine/palustrine successions from
high-altitude alpine and prealpine sites, to reconstruct the
environmental history connected with the activities
of prehistoric settlements. Since the Academic Year 2007-2008 she gives lectures in
Palynology at the Univ. of Milano.
Diploma in Natural Sciences, now PhD candidate at the Integrative Prehistory and Archaeological Science IPNA/IPAS, Basel
University. Her doctoral thesis focuses on the plant economy
of two Bronze Age sites in
northern Italy (Lake Garda region): Lucone D and Lavagnone
lakeshore settlements. Her general research interests
include plant economy of prehistory, human impact on natural
environments, recent vegetation history and anthropogenic
indicators. She has analysed botanical remains from various
prehistoric, roman and medieval sites in Northern Italy.
From 2002/3 to 2012/13 academic years, she gave lectures in
Archaeobotany at the University of Milan (Sciences applied
to Cultural Heritage and Master in Archaeology).
Diploma in Natural Sciences (Palaeobiology).
He is interested in the evolution of natural and anthropic
vegetation in archaeological sites of Bronze Age with
special reference to the site of Lavagnone di Desenzano del Garda
(BS). Now he collaborates with the Province of Cremona for
palaeoenvironmental and stratigraphical investigations on
the former mire of Mosi di Crema (CR) and on the plain
between the Adda and Serio Rivers.
Diploma in Natural Sciences,
she holds a one year-scholarship at C.N.R. - IDPA. She
carries out paleobotanical and geochemical investigations on
lacustrine/palustrine sediments related to archeological
areas, to reconstruct the environmental history before,
during and after settlement phases.
in Cultural Heritage Studies at Universitā degli
Studi of Milano, now PhD student at the University of Kiel, he analyzed the pollen content of
samples from the pile-dwelling site of Lavagnone (Desenzano
del Garda, BS) to characterize the local vegetation and the
human impact during the Bronze Age.
in Natural Sciences,
now PhD student at DISAT - Univ. of Milano - Bicocca, she is involved in the high-resolution
pollen analysis of Quaternary lacustrine deposits to
reconstruct vegetation and climate changes.
in Natural Sciences at Universitā degli
Studi of Milano, now PhD student at the University of Bremen,
she was involved in the pollen and
macrofossil analysis of
lake deposits from the Lavagnone Basin (Desenzano del Garda,
in Cultural Heritage Studies at the University of Milano,
now PhD student at the New York University - Institute
for the Study of the Ancient World. He is
interested in Environmental Archaeology, with special focus
on anthracology and xylology. He is also involved in
quantitative paleoclimate reconstructions through
palynological data, and interested in the climate-environment-human
cultures interactions during prehistoric and protohistoric
in Environmental Sciences and Technologies, she is
interested in paleoecological studies on sediments from
alpine mires, to reconstruct climate and vegetation history
of high-altitude environments during the last 7 ky.

Milano, now diploma student in Archaeology. He studies plant
macroremains from the Bronze Age pile-dwelling site of
Lavagnone (Lake Garda area).
