Abstract

This annual report provides information about excavations in the territory of Croton. After the excavation at Metaponto, the archaeological team of the Institute of Classical Archaeology shifted its attention to Croton, a preeminent Greek colony in Italy. The primary aim of this excavation was to investigate the motives behind the location of farm sites within certain agricultural zones. The report presents the preliminary findings and conclusions of excavations at Capo Alfiere, a small coastal promontory south of the modern city of Crotone, and at Torre Bugiafro, a medieval ruin near the town of Isola Capo Rizzuto.
