Fabrizio Ducati is a classical archaeologist working on the Mediterranean during Roman times. His previous research investigated Roman and Byzantine Sicily's socio-economic background as part of a PhD jointly supervised by the University of Palermo and the University of Aix Marseille. His expertise in landscape archaeology and urbanism, GIS and other remote sensing technologies, CAD, and a variety of graphics software has proved to be an essential tool for completing his PhD (2020), and the fellowship he received from the École française de Rome (2018). All the international experience, including outside of Europe, has enhanced his competence in foreign languages and his transferable and complementary skills, enriching his collaboration network. His involvement in the international research program ATHAr-Maghreb (Histoire et Archéologie du Maghreb ancien) and other fieldwork in Tunisia gave him a good awareness of the principal archaeological contexts of several cities as well as rural areas. He also cooperates with the Universität Graz (Ostia), the University of Arizona (Sicily), the Escuela de Estudios Árabes de Granada (Sicily), and The British Columbia University (Sicily). Fabrizio was an adjunct professor at the University of Palermo (2020-2021), where he organised a workshop on Roman pottery for graduate students. He was also a guest lecturer at the Charles University, Institute of Classical Archaeology. Since 1st December 2022, he has been a postdoc fellow at the RomanIslam - Center for Comparative Empire and Transcultural Studies – of Hamburg University.
