UNiPA team has attended the 2016 ESSC INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE "SOIL - OUR COMMON FUTURE” in CLUJ-NAPOCA (ROMANIA) on last JUNE 15-18, 2016. "Soils, past landscapes and cultural heritage: phytoliths as indicators of ancient crops” was the the title of the oral communication presented at the Conference. Recent findings on crop cultivated during the Islamic period in Sicily were discussed and the importance of the soils’ cultural value was stressed. Giuseppe Lo Papa concluded the presentation highlighting the cultural importance of the human migrations in the Sicilian agricultural heritage, also wishing, on behalf of the MEMOLA project Team, that recent migrations could continue to leave positive footprints in the soil rather than in the Mediterranean Sea floor.
