Photographer's Note

Amelia (TR)
According to a tradition attested in the work of the scholar Cato the Elder, Ameria was founded by the eponymous hero Amiro in the year 1134 BC, 963 years before the Roman war against the Macedonian king Perseus. The very ancient foundation that the antiquarian tradition attributes to the city is not contradicted by the most ancient archaeological traces: the first anthropic frequentations seem to be attested on the cliff between the third and second millennium BC. Ceramic remains and an inhabited area of ​​huts found on the south-eastern side allow us to hypothesize the existence of small scattered settlements on the hill between the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Between the sixth and fifth centuries, the Umbrian center of Amer must have been structured by now and had an extra-urban sanctuary in the Pantanelli area with an adjoining necropolis. The level of social articulation reached by the city is reflected at the end of the 4th century in the rich materials coming from the tombs of a new necropolar area which extends at the exit of the city along Via Amerina. At the beginning of the third century, official relations were established with Rome: a political reality that appeared with great expansion potential on the horizon of the Umbrian and Falisci territories.
