Francesco A. Cuteri
A graduate in mediaeval archaeology from the University of Siena, he completed his studies in archaelogy at the University of Florence and was awarded a doctorate in research by the University of Pisa.
He was adjunct professor in "archaeology and surveying of historical buildings" and in "mediaeval archaeology" at the Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria from 1999 to 2011. He has carried out much research in Tuscany and Calabria, and in Greece, where he held introductory courses in byzantine architecture. He is involved in excavations at Stilo, Tropea, Castelmonardo (Filadelfia) and Monasterace marina. In this latter locality, where the remains of ancient Kaulonia are conserved, he was responsible for the discovery of a precious mosaic from the hellenic age, depicting marine dragons and dolphins, which can be considered as the biggest and most well-structured from Magna Graecia.
He is the author of numerous works on archaeological, mining and architectural subjects.
