The University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’ began teaching in 1982. Designed on the model of Anglo-Saxon campuses, it occupies an area of approximately 600 hectares. This particular extension has made it possible to develop each of the six Macroareas into separate structures, built in large dedicated spaces.
The University is strongly committed to promoting the international dimension of studies and research, both in its undergraduate and doctoral programmes. There are also joint research programmes (thematic and interdisciplinary), academic exchanges and agreements for the mutual recognition of training credits with the world’s most prestigious universities, with over 800 agreements (bilateral and cultural/scientific cooperation).
“Tor Vergata” is working hard to develop multiple lines of activity related to the “third mission”, thanks to which it creates stable processes of direct interaction with civil society, institutions and the business community, with the aim of promoting culture, social innovation and territorial growth.

Our school is the leader of a network of almost 60 schools, that includes more than half of the educational Institutes in Verona and province and some schools belonging to other Italian regions. The experienced network teachers work with students up to 18 years of age. Students will be able to share every step of the project during its development in order to keep it alive and updated for all schools, teachers and general users. Translation into the main European languages studied is also possible (in addition to English, Italian, Spanish, German, French, Chinese and Russian). A constant confrontation among teachers will be necessary to verify the effectiveness of the atlas.

Liceo Statale “Marie Curie” is a secondary high school; it is a scientific, humanistic and
linguistic school. It is designed to give students the skills to progress to any university or
higher educational institution.
Our school will contribute to the exploitation of the results through the use of the projects web
site and of the mapping tools provided by the project. The maps will be used as instruments
for the lessons of ancient history, Latin and Ancient Greek. Our school participates in
international projects together with other (European) schools: during the meetings and the
common working sessions the projects and the maps will be presented to the partners.
Moreover our school will participate in the “Hackathon” organised by the project.
The Pedagogical Resource Centers (CRP) are teams of dynamization and advice of professionals and educational centers for the improvement and educational transformation. The main functions are: The detection, collection and dissemination of reference educational practices of teachers in the area as well as innovative projects of centers. Support for educational networks in the area ensuring equity and inclusion. Support and accompaniment to teachers and schools in the educational use of digital technologies, with the aim of guaranteeing online learning for students.
The program will be disseminated on the website and also in an etwinning project that will begin to be developed this November and which aims to collect all the internationalization actions that are carried out in schools in the province of Lleida. Through the MHM (Mobile History Maps) interactive application.

Contact: Joaquín Gorrochategui Churruca
Joaquín Gorrochategui is Doctor in Classical Philology (Univ. of Salamanca 1982) with a dissertation about Indigenous Onomastics of Aquitaine, under supervision of Prof. Michelena. He continued Post-Graduate studies at the University of Bonn (1985-86) about Celtic languages, under the direction of KH Schmidt. He has been visiting scholar at the University of Wales (Aberystwyth), in the Ausonius Institute at the University of Bordeaux and at the University Tor Vergata (Rome), and Guest professor at the Ecole Pratique (Université de la Sorbonne).
In the field of historical linguistics, his main activity has focused on the understanding of the language situation in Western Europe in antiquity, combining the primary linguistic and historical data. He has studied the most ancient phases of Basque documented through onomastic remains from Aquitania and northern Spain, as well as the epigraphic data concerning Palaeohispanic languages like Celtiberian. Lusitanian and Iberian. He has paid attention to (dialectal) classification of the some of these languages, and to aspects of language contact in the Western Roman Empire: the impact of Latin in indigenous languages, processes mutual accommodation and
transfer, identity, etc.
He has been editor of Veleia (1984-2012) and member of the editorial board of several journals, among them Aquitania, Palaeohispanica and Veleia. Since 2012 he is the responsible of the Hesperia online databank, whose main objective is the edition and study of all the linguistic remains concerning the ancient languages of the Iberian Peninsula.
Professor Gorrochategui, as an expert in ancient Indo-European languages in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in the Basque-Aquitanian language, will contribute with his advice in the elaboration of the corpus that will serve as the basis for the digital Atlas. In addition, his experience in directing the Hesperia database will be of great value, both in checking the digital Atlas and its correct operation, as well as in the correct orientation of its design, especially from the point of view of its scientific use. In addition, his role is essential for the exportation of data from the Hesperia database.
Lastly, Professor Gorrochatebui will contribute to the dissemination of the project in congresses or scientific meetings, as well as in his teaching activity.
