Filippo Coarelli

Filippo Coarelli is an Italian archaeologist, Professor of Greek and Roman Antiquities at the University of Perugia.

Born in Rome, Coarelli was a student of Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli. Coarelli is one of the foremost experts on Roman antiquities and the history of early Rome. A leading expert on the topography of ancient Rome, Coarelli produced a series of books from the 1980s and 1990s that have altered modern thinking about how Roman topography developed. His work on Italian monumental sanctuaries of the late Roman Republic is considered standard.

He led the team that discovered what is believed to be the villa in which Vespasian was born at Falacrinae. Together with British colleagues, he has long been involved in the archaeological exploration and documentation of Fregellae.

His important and influential handbook furnishing an archaeological guide to Rome and its environs was translated into English by Daniel P. Harmon and James J. Clauss. Provided by Wikipedia
