The Centro Italiano di studi sull'Alto Medioevo. has its headquarters in Spoleto, Umbria (Italy) in the magnificent Palazzo Ancaiani.
This is undoubtedly the most prestigious location of studies and conferences devoted to the Dark Ages/Early Middle Ages (V-XI century) that Europe or the entire scientific community may claim.
The fixed appointment of Thursday after Easter (the “”Study Weeks” organized every year since 1953) represents a strong appeal for scholars who wish to update on new data and more innovative methods of international medieval research.
The proceedings of the Spoleto “Weeks” represent a necessary instrument for all those, who enquire about the various aspects of the early Middle Ages civilization.
