Abstract

Since 2020 a team of the University of Palermo started a wide program of research in the site of Solunto (Mt. Catalfano), in collaboration with the Archaeological Park of Himera, Solunto and Iato, inclunding several activities of study, documentation and 3D restitution/reconstruction of the buildings discovered in 20th century, and feldwork/excavations in the North Baths (NE corner of the agora) and the Sanctuary W of the theater. We illustrate the frst results of the work in progress in the great sanctuary area on the top of the agora-theater, that are giving a wholly new picture of the complexity and monumentality of this part of the ancient city. On the other hand, we discovered unexpected traces of the urban history from 4th century B.C. on, that allow us to solve the vexata quaestio of the chronology of the urban plan, and to understand the development of the city over time.
