    The present volume focuses on the circumstances around the inner part of the Basilicata region during the first millennium B. C. It pays particular attention to the area known as North Lucania which is the Apennine zone surrounding Potenza. This area has recently re-emerged to prominence due to important archaeological discoveries such as the princely tombs at Braida di Vaglio and Baragiano, and the chieftains' houses at Torre di Satriano. A broader research along with the systematic fluid of publications, have made this territory better known than others in the region. The aforementioned research and publications have been produced thanks to brilliant work of the Archaeological Superintendence which has attained a high level of efficiency due in large part of the pioneering commitment of Dinu Adamesteanu and his staff, and years of a close relationship with the University of Basilicata. Such a tight rapport of University-Superintendence has produced the "Torre di Satriano Project, which has given back to the scientific community a true role-model, shedding light on the social and settlement phenomena, ritual dynamics and manifestations of power of the italic cultures of south Italy.

    Massimo Osanna is Director General of the Pompeii Archaeological Park and Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Naples Federico II.
    He has previously taught at the University of Basilicata, where he managed the School of Specialisation in the Archaeological Heritage of Matera, and was a visiting professor at both the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris and the University of Heidelberg. He carried out research funded by the Humboldt Foundation at the Universities of Berlin and Heidelberg, and held a research fellowship at the Italian Archaeological School of Athens. He was also Superintendent for the Archaeological Heritage of Basilicata.
    He spent many years supervising field research in Italy (Torre di Satriano, Ascoli Satriano, Pantelleria, Taureana di Palmi, Gabii) and abroad (Alesia). He currently does research on the island of Rheneia in collaboration with the Ephoria in the Cyclades and the École française d' Athènes.
    He has overseen the restauration of the entire city of Pompeii, paying particular care securing hazardous structures and major buildings in order to increase the site' s safety. He has developed projects for the valorisation and accessibility in the context of the "Great Pompeii Project". He also promoted extensive research in the temples and public areas of the city, in collaboration with Italian and foreign universities and research institutes, as well as new research on Regio V.
    He is the author of over a hundred essays and monographs dedicated to the archaeology of Greece and Magna Graecia, as well as to the study of ancient rituals, the reconstruction of settlement patterns and the phenomena of mobility and cultural contacts.
