Investigation of the hominins cognition and behavior by means of experimental archaeology,
technological analysis and functional analysis of archaeological artifacts. Application of
innovative techniques to use-wear analysis.
PRESENT ACADEMIC POSITION
From March 2008 she is Associate Professor at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. She
teaches Experimental Archaeology and Use-Wear analysis of archaeological artifacts.
She has organized, and nowadays supervises, the Laboratory of Techno-Functional Analysis of
Archaeological Artifacts, Dep. of Classics, University of Rome “La Sapienza”. She is the winner
for years 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2018 of a grant from Sapienza University devoted to the
improvement of the laboratory equipment (Finanziamenti Medie Atterzzature, Sapienza
She collaborates on various national and international projects on typological, technological and
functional analysis of lithic industry, polished stones, macro-lithic artefacts, hard animal material
artifacts, clay artifacts from both Plio-Pleistocene and Holocene archaeological sites and
2007-2010 She was the director of the project: “Developing a FTIR (Fourier Transfer InfraRed)
spectra collection for interpreting residues of the prehistoric activities.” ICRG 64 ICRG 91,
supported by The Wenner-Gren Foundation (NY).
Since 2009 she coordinates a research project of traces analysis of Lower Paleolithic contexts of
Israel supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE Project) by Sapienza University
(International Scientific Agreements).
Since 2009 she is part of the team of scholars involved in the study of various Oldowan sites
from Kanjera Peninsula (Kenya); she is team leader of the use-wear analysis.
In 2012 she obtained a Grant FARI (La Sapienza University Grant) to test the feasibility of a
project of traces analysis of prehistoric stone objects and stone buildings by the application of
digital close range photogrammetry.
In 2012 she was co-organizer of the International Workshop “An integration of use-wear and
residues analysis for the identification of the function of archaeological stone tools”, held in
Rome (5-7 of March) and supported by the Conference and Workshop Grants Program of
Wenner-Gren Foundation (NY).
In 2013 she was co-organizer of the International Workshop “The origin of recycling: a
Paleolithic perspective”, held in Tel Aviv (7-10 of October) and supported by the Conference
and Workshop Grants Program of Wenner-Gren Foundation (NY).
Since 2013 she is part of the team of scholars involved in the study of the Neolithic phases of
Ҫatalhöyük (Ҫatalhöyük Research Project, director I.Hodder); she is team leader of the use-wear
analysis of the chipped stone tools.
Since 2017 she is part of the team of scholars involved in the study of the Lower Paleolithic site
of Notarchirico, Venosa (excavation and scientific project directed by Marie-Hélène Moncel);
she is team leader of the use-wear analysis of the chipped stone tools.
19th April 1988: she obtained the bachelor’s degree in Humanity Sciences at the University of
Rome "La Sapienza". The degree’s thesis concerned the interpretative potential of use-wear
analysis applied to Middle Palaeolithic flint industries.
21st October 1997: she received the title of PhD of Archaeology at Leiden University (Holland).
The research has been published in BAR International Series: C.Lemorini (2000), Reconnaître
des tactiques d’exploitation du milieu au Paléolithique moyen. La contribution de l’analyse
fonctionnelle. Etude fonctionnellle des industries lithiques de Grotta Breuil (Latium, Italie) et de
La Combette (Bonnieux, Vaucluse, France), BAR (I.S.) 858.
1999-2001: she attended to a TMR Project CEE as a Post-Doc scholar to apply use-wear analysis
to a Pre-pottery Neolithic site of Dead See (Israel), to Lower and Middle Paleolithic site and to
Copper age sites of Portugal.
She is the author of one monograph, co-editing of four publications and author of 180 papers
published and in press.
