Agrigento: Gymnasium and Bath Building
The project, planned for five years (2019–2024), aims at investigating the gymnasium and a bath building that are both located in the center of the ancient city of Agrigento. While the temples and sanctuaries of Agrigento have long attracted interest in research, the city has only recently come into focus thanks to an impressive program launched by the Parco Archeologico e Paesaggistico della Valle dei Templi di Agrigento (see e.g. Caliò et al. 2017; Caminneci – Parello 2019; Caminneci et al. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018a, 2018b, 2019a, 2019b, 2020). The FU project contributes to this new program and to gaining a deeper knowledge of the ancient city of Agrigento. It is carried out under direction of Monika Trümper in cooperation with the Parco Archeologico e Paesaggistico della Valle dei Templi di Agrigento.
