Publications

Starting from the data that has emerged from excavations, the results of these years of research have also produced a series of monographs being published under the title Bibliotheca Italica - Serie Tusculum, works made possible also through financial support from the XI Mountain District. This, however, is the natural progression of the field work philosophy that has always distinguished the Spanish School, an organization that has always considered broad distribution of the results achieved one of its principle goals, to the benefit of the entire international scientific community. Thus ensues the effort to close the gap field work and publication of the results, as far as possible, a fact witnessed by the rapid publication of the so-called Informes di scavo or excavation reports, some of which have been translated into Italian.

The next volume, which will present the results of the as yet unpublished digs of 2002, 2003, 2005 and September 2008, is scheduled for publication in 2009. Thanks also to the participation of various members at international seminars and congresses, the commitment toward spread of the research performed under the auspices of the “Tusculum” project has significantly enhanced the scientific community's knowledge of historic-archaeological questions regarding Tusculum. Moreover, last May a new editorial initiative was undertaken by the Spanish School and entitled Noticias. It is a bi-annual journal, published in both Italian and Spanish, distributed free of charge to Spanish, Italian and foreign universities and research centres located in Rome (e.g. British School, Ecole Francaise, etc.). The goal of the journal is to ensure broad dissemination of the Spanish School's activities and publications, congresses and seminars and, obviously, the archaeological and research activities performed at Tusculum. As mentioned previously, one of the moving forces behind the project has been its ability to renew itself and, over the years, to set new research goals in response to expanding knowledge. In this sense, the new phase of scientific knowledge we are currently brought with it new problems in terms of distribution and social communication of the research results.

Today one of the main goals of the Spanish School is to collaborate with the Mountain District in defining and creating a true and proper Tusculum Archaeological Park. And with an eye toward the construction of a social visibility project for the archaeological area, the Spanish School has recently been conducting a series of activities aimed at recovering the site for presentation to the public.
