The notebook illustrates the results of the excavation carried out by the archaeologists of the Degree Course in Conservation of Cultural Heritage based in Grosseto, in collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendency of Tuscany, in the Romanesque church of S. Pietro in Grosseto as part of the restoration project promoted. from the Diocese of Grosseto. The publication of the excavation, given the importance of the information that emerged also on the phases relating to the VII-IX centuries in a framework that in some ways may appear concluded, is an opportunity to propose a reflection on the origin and development of a medieval city as Grosseto. The specific intervention on San Pietro is part of a systematic research framework on the formative processes of the city, and has made it possible to optimize the information, presented through a punctual edition, and to propose some stimulating and very precise reconstructive hypotheses. At the center of the research, therefore, lies not only the significant early medieval and medieval religious monument, but the entire context within which this structure has been transformed.
