ITALY

Italy owns numerous Coin Cabinets, prestigious Coin Collections, various Numismatic Societies and also several Chairs of Numismatics - the first established in Europe - that have been contributing to train a lot of able scholars of Numismatics.
The ancient cities of Sicily and Magna Graecia were some of the first to mint coins and to experiment economic policies founded on fiduciary money and inspired by the idea of monetary unions or of a “single currency”.
Later the coinage struck by the Medieval Italian Communes represented the basis for the monetary policies of many European Countries.

The COST network will work in the same period of the preparation of the XV International Numismatic Congress which is going to take place in Taormina in 2015. To attract the attention of national and international authorities on the numismatic heritage, to develop its extraordinary potential and promote knowledge of it among not only scholars but also the general public, Italian Numismatists are planning Projects aimed to the valorisation of the role that coinage can play in the knowledge of a people's history and culture.


University of Messina.

University of Messina logo The University of Messina is one of the most ancient Universities in Italy, founded in 1548 and the Chair of Numismatics was one of the first three established in Italy, in 1967. In the Faculty of Lettere e Filosofia Maria Caccamo Caltabiano and E. Daniele Castrizio are professors respectively of Iconography and History of ancient Numismatics and Medieval Numismatics.

Young and able numismatists collaborate for the realisation of various research projects in the field of iconography and coin circulation.
Our coin cabinet contains a small numismatic Collection of Roman coins and numerous casts above all of ancient Sicilian coins especially struck by the mints of Messana and Syracuse. The University of Messina owns also the B. Baldanza Collection consisting of coins locally found from Greek times to the period of the Spanish dominion.
The Chair of Numismatics and the Department of Antiquities have been organising for several years numerous seminars and conferences on Numismatics and the series Pelorias often hosts articles or monographic contributions about coin circulation and economic history.
Professor Caccamo Caltabiano is editor of the series Semata e Signa which publishes monographs and proceedings of congresses about coin iconography. › See letter of support (.pdf) › See letter of support (.pdf) › Website

Pr Maria Caltabiano Pr Maria CaltabianoProfessor of Greek and Roman Numismatics, Coordinator of the Ph.D. Course in Archaeological and Historical Sciences. President of the Scientific Committee of the XV International Numismatic Congress - Taormina 2015. Member of the International Numismatic Council. Promoter and Coordinator of the LIN Project aimed to realize the Lexicon Iconographicum Numismaticae Classicae et Mediae Aetatis (LIN) under the patronage of the International Numismatic Council and the Accademia dei Lincei.
She is interested also in studying the economic dynamics and functions of coinage in antiquity and the cultural importance of the iconic numismatic tradition. Convinced of the usefulness of an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, she thinks that the COST project will promote awareness of the historical relevance of the past numismatic and economic experiences for the current national and international choices.

Dr Mariangela Puglisi logo Dr Mariangela PuglisiResearch fellow in Numismatics at the University of Messina, specialised in Classical Archaeology, PhD in Numismatics (dissertation about coin circulation in Sicily from the end of 5th century BC down to the end of the Roman Republican age).
Main fields of research: coin circulation, iconography on Greek and Roman coins, symbols of power on Roman coins.

For me the COST is important to disseminate our working methods, to promote a continuous scientific dialogue among scholars within the EU with the purpose of recovering the knowledge of the relationships through different political entities of the past testified by the choices in the monetary field (both economic and iconographic) aimed at establishing a common market and a sort of monetary union ante litteram. › Personal Page

Pr Adriano Savio Pr Adriano SavioNato a Milano il 28/4/1947,si è laureato in Numismatica presso la Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia dell'Università degli Studi di Milano il 1/7/1971 con una tesi sulla monetazione di Nerone, relatore il prof. Ernesto Bernareggi, correlatori i proff. Mario Attilio Levi e Ignazio Cazzaniga.
Nel 1991 Adriano Savio ha concluso una lunga analisi quantitativa delle monete alessandrine di mistura di Otone giungendo alla conclusione che la maggior parte dei tetradrammi egiziani venivano coniati durante l'epoca dei raccolti ("Atti dell'XI Congresso Internazionale di Numismatica" di Bruxelles e "Rivista Italiana di Numismatica" del 1991"). Più tardi ha anche effettuato un esame tecnico e tipologico delle monete di bronzo, i cui risultati, non sempre concordanti con quelli del "Roman Provincial Coinage", sono stati pubblicati nella "Rivista Svizzera di Numismatica" del 2000.
Successivamente, interessato al tema quantitativo, Adriano Savio ha partecipato a due convegni sull'argomento tenuti rispettivamente presso l'Università degli Studi di Pavia e presso la Scuola Britannica di Roma. Gli articoli conseguenti alle due relazioni, molto critici sulla possibilità di raggiungere valori assoluti in questo campo, sono stati pubblicati nella "Rivista Italiana di Numismatica" del 1997 e negli "Annali dell'Istituto Italiano di Numismatica" del 1997 (in realtà del 1999).
Nel maggio 2009 ha organizzato presso l’Università degli Studi di Milano una giornata di studi per celebrare il centenario della pubblicazione del primo volume del Corpus Nummorum Italicorum; gli atti, curati insieme a un collaboratore, sono stati pubblicati nel marzo del 2010.
Contemporaneamente all'attività di ricerca Adriano Savio ha svolto attività pubblicistica, scrivendo articoli di storia monetaria e di attualità economica per quotidiani e riviste specializzate. In particolare ha scritto articoli in cui prevedeva la svalutazione della lira del 1992, in cui criticava l'introduzione della banconota da 500.000 lire e in cui si opponeva al trionfalismo con il quale il Governo italiano presentava al pubblico il passaggio all'euro nei primi mesi del 1999. Inoltre ha coordinato il gruppo di lavoro che ha creato un libro di testo per la scuola secondaria di argomento economico-monetario, Che cos'è la moneta, pubblicato dall'editore Giunti di Firenze nel 1987.
Adriano Savio ha partecipato tenendo relazioni e fungendo da chairman ai congressi internazionali di Numismatica di Bruxelles, di Berlino, di Madrid e di Glasgow, nonché a molti convegni di settore.
Adriano Savio ha ricoperto per anni l'Affidamento di Numismatica Antica presso l'Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia e quello di Storia Economica e Sociale del Mondo Antico presso l'Università degli Studi di Milano. E' anche docente nel Dottorato di Storia dell’Università di Pisa e nella Scuola di Specializzazione in Archeologia dell’Università degli Studi di Milano. › Personal Page


 

Dr Simone Selva Dr. Simone SelvaI´m a former associate fellow in the Rothermere American Institute at Oxford University (2007) and visiting scholar at Columbia university (2008). For the academic year 2010/2011 I have been appointed visiting scholar at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard University.
Throughout my post doctoral research experience my work was always concerned with the role of monetary policy in the process of supra-nationa economic and financial integration. The history of international economic relations between Western Europe and the United States is my field of specialization. It is closely interweaved with both the west European trade and monetary integration since 1945 onward, and with the history of world trade and exchange rates system. Particularly, I have been working on the changing balance between balance of payments and internal monetary stability in the West European countries in the early steps of European integration and in the framework of the US post WWII economic and military assistance programs to Europe.

My participation to the EMU COST project would be particularly useful and stimulating both because it can let me have scholarly exchanges with economic historians concerned with other national case studies from my own research perspective, and because it can add further to my knowledge a broader and long-duree perspective on historical case studies of regional and transnational processes of monetary integration and unification. Therefore, I am eager to chat both with scholars working on monetary history since the Ancient time, and with historians of European monetary integration in Modern European History. › Personal Page
