At its third edition, the course was held under the direction of Roberto Nardi (CCA’s director) and Susan Stevens (Professor of Classics and Archaeology, Randolph College). It took place between the 14th of May and the 18th of June 2013, and it was attended by 9 undergraduate and graduate students from Randolph College, Virginia. The course, four week long, was split in two sessions: the first was held at the Convento di San Nicola in Belmonte in Sabina, Rieti and the second was set in the archaeological excavation of the nuraghe di Sant'Imbenia in Alghero, Sardinia.
The 2013 program combined theoretical lectures, presentation and discussion of case studies, study trips to cultural destinations in Italy, and field work on the archaeological excavation of the Nuraghe di Sant'Imbenia, Alghero, Sardinia. The participants worked for the first three weeks on the Sant’Imbenia roman villa’s frescoe and marble fragments in the CCA Lab, and for the last week they took active part to the excavation campaign under the direction of Prof. Marco Rendeli of the University of Sassari.
