Cosa (Ansedonia, GR), a Roman Colony founded in 273 AC is an archeological site that has attracted an extraordinary lot of studies that delivered fundamental keypoints for the understanding of both the urbanistic development and the development of Roman Architecture in the Republican and Imperial Era. But Cosa is also a paradoxical settlement. Located on one of the most spectacular promontories of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the city had to confront a complex ecology and moments of acute recession. How the local community managed nevertheless to remain for a long time in place and to adapt to the evolution of politcal and ambiental dynamics will be at the center of this presentation.
