L’isola di domani. Cultura materiale e contesti archeologici a San Giacomo in Paludo (Venezia)


Author: Margherita Ferri, Cecilia Moine
Year of printing: 2014
ISBN: 9788878145986


The book is the history of the island of yesterday and above all of the relationship between its spaces, its inhabitants, the buildings they occupied and their everyday objects, from the late Middle Ages to today.
San Giacomo in Paludo is an island in the northern lagoon of Venice, now uninhabited, but which since the XNUMXth century has hosted first a community of Cistercian nuns, then a Franciscan priory and finally some military garrisons.
The first part of the book tells the archaeological and historical research: the general description of the occupied spaces and of the single excavated areas is followed by the discussion on specific types of data such as ceramics, human remains, fauna and historical sources.
The second part of the work tries to understand the significance of this place in the course of the different historical moments through the point of view of the inhabitants and that of the wider lagoon.
The main theme of the research is the communities that have inhabited it and their material remains. The three main variables used for their characterization were the use of space, relations with the area outside the island and, finally, waste treatment.
In the past the site has always been a mirror of the relationship between Venice and its lagoon. What will be the island of tomorrow?
