“Der einzige Weg für uns, groß, ja, wenn es möglich ist, unnachahmlich zu werden, is die Nachahmung der Alten.”
Johannes Winckelmann

Classics played a major and fundamental role in the cultural history of Western Europe. Few would call this into question. Since the Carolingian period, notably ‘classical' literature has served as a constant source and model of creativity and inspiration, by which the literary identity of Europe has been negotiated and (re-)defined. The tendency to return to the classics and resuscitate them remains sensible until today, as classical themes and stories are central to multiple contemporary literary works, both in ‘popular' and ‘high' culture. Think for instance of Rick Riordan's fantastic tales about Percy Jackson or Colm Tóibín's refined novels retelling the Oresteia.

This monograph deals with the polychromy on Roman marble sarcophagi produced in Rome from the beginning of the 2nd century to the end of the 4th century AD. It addresses the issues of colour and gilding by topic, in a discursive way, from a technical and practical point of view. The monograph brings together results and data derived from field observations, scientific analyses combined with archive-bibliographical research by emerging technologies in support of the classic process. For the first time, the study of polychromy is dealt with in a totally new way and the research focuses exclusively on a specific class of archaeological artefacts. This approach does not alter the text of the manuscript broad and complementary examination of the materials studied from a historical and archaeological profile. Thus, the search is configured for its transdisciplinarity constituting a pioneering product for the subject matter, so innovative in content and method.
