Proceedings of the Study Day in memory of Graziella Berti, four years after her death.

10 June 2017 - Plaster cast gallery of Ancient Art piazza S. Paolo all'Orto n. 20 Pisa.

Storie (di) Ceramiche "is a study day dedicated to the memory of Graziella Berti, a scholar of medieval ceramics and an important figure for historical studies on medieval and modern Pisa, who passed away on 11 June 2013. This occasion, now in its fourth edition, she wants to remember it in the way that she herself would have appreciated most: through the themes dear to her, research innovation and new generations of scholars.
The fourth edition, held on 10 June 2017 in Pisa, four years after the scholar's death, was dedicated to the theme "Ceramics and Archaeometry", meaning in this way to recall the commitment to the application of archaeometric methods for ceramological studies, of which he seized the great potential by collaborating many times with Tiziano Mannoni and Claudio Capelli on these issues.
The studies included in this volume and presented during the fourth day of studies, analyze archeometry as a system to be able to understand more in depth technological aspects and the use of medieval and modern ceramics, and to be able to draw useful information to answer questions historical-archaeological. In them it is possible to grasp the potential of different archaeometric researches applied to ceramics in which we try to overcome the dichotomy between humanistic and scientific studies, allowing the data collected through different sources to interface with each other in order to reconstruct history.
