Rights Roundup: A New Look at Southern Italy’s Ancient Paestum

From Publishing Perspectives’ edition of Rights Roundup: “We’re pleased to start with something we don’t get frequently enough: A well-researched, deeply informed look at the place that Paestum, on the southern west coast of Italy, holds not only in archaeology but also in ancient cultural diversity.

The German-Italian researcher and Gabriel Zuchtriegel–now Rome’s director of the Pompeii site–studied at Humboldt in Berlin and the University of Bonn, and excavated at Selinunte and Eraclea before being made director of the sprawling Paestum site.

So today (June 17), we start with Zuchtreigel–whose Paestum from Carocci Editore of course, has references of the “tomb of the diver” discovered there, a cooling thought in a hot early June.”
