Department of Historical and Geographic Sciences and the Ancient World

The Department carries out research and teaching, ranging from the reigns of the third millenium B.C. and the Greek and Latin civilisations until the contemporary world, with particular focus on the following: history of institutions and political, social and religious movements in the Mediterranean, European and world contexts; history of culture; global/world history; history of Venice and the Veneto region; history and geography of economic territories and systems; and history, enhancement and management of industrial heritage. It hosts inter-university centres and cooperates with both Italian and foreign universities within a perspective of research/study (Master Erasmus Mundus and post-graduate levels) and of direct links between higher education and research (School of Historical, Geographic and Anthropological Sciences).
