This international archaeological initiative was launched in 2007 to excavate and study the ancient Latin city of Gabii, a city-state that was both a neighbor of, and a rival to, Rome in the first millennium BC. The site provides a unique opportunity to study the development and structure of early urban planning in central Italy, both monumental and civic architecture, domestic space, and other corollary questions.
