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.
in Environmental Sciences (DISAT,
Milano – Bicocca University). Her research focus on
the palynostratigraphical analysis of Quaternary deposits to
understand past vegetation dynamics and climate variability.
She was involved in palaeoenvironmental researches of
Pleistocene and Holocene series in the Po Basin and
high-altitude mires in the Italian Alps.
in Natural Sciences, she earned her PhD at the Integrative
Prehistory and Archaeological Science
IPNA/IPAS, University of Basel. Her doctoral thesis
focused 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).
in Natural Sciences at the Faculty of Geosciences,
University of Bremen (Germany) with a dissertation focused
on environmental and climatic changes in west Africa during
the Pliocene. Within the frame of the CNR - NextData project,
she develops transfer functions to be applied on fossil
pollen records (Holocene, Last Glacial Maximum, last 15 ka)
to obtain quantitative estimates of paleoclimate parameters
for northern Italy. She also did palynological, loss on
ignition and plant macrofossil analysis of lacustrine
sediments (lake Lavagnone at Desenzano del Garda, BS). She
took part in several coring campaigns in the Alps.
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 Natural Sciences at the University of Milano, now PhD student at DISAT - University
of Milano - Bicocca. She is involved in quantitative
reconstructions of climatic series in mountain environment
based on paleoecological and ecological data.
in Cultural Heritage Studies at Università 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 Science, she holds a scholarship at the
Laboratory of Palynology and Palaeoecology at CNR-IDPA in
Milan. She deals with palynological, geochemical and
anthracological analysis in archaeological sites to
reconstruct the history of vegetation and climate, and
interactions with human peopling. She is also involved in
the paleobotanical analysis of Pleistocene palustrine and
fluvial sediments from Lodi.
Diploma in Natural Sciences (Palaeobiology).
He is interested in the evolution of natural and anthropic
vegetation in Bronze Age archaeological sites with
special reference to the site of Lavagnone di Desenzano del Garda
(BS). He takes part to the stratigraphic and paleobotanical
analysis of sediments to reconstruct the paleoenvironmental
history of the Po Plain sector between the Adda and the
Diploma student in Quaternary, Prehistory
and Stratigraphy at the University of Ferrara, he works at
the Lab. of Palynology and Palaeoecology of CNR-IDPA for the
preparation of his thesis. He is analyzing sediments from a
Gravettian site in the Emilian Apennine.
Undergraduate student in
History at the University of Milano, he is going to address
his studies to prehistory and environmental archaeology. He
is working on a graduation thesis about plant macroremains
from the Etruscan age site of Forcello.

works at the Lab. of Palynology and Palaeoecology of
CNR-IDPA for the preparation of her thesis. She carries out
palynological analysis on moss and litter samples from the
Canary Islands to explore the relationships between modern
pollen rain and vegetation cover.
Archaeology at the University of Milano, he studied plant
macroremains from the Bronze Age pile-dwelling site of
Lavagnone (Lake Garda area). He
