Abstract

The ceramic samples come from the archaeological excavation in Pianella di Monte Savino, territory of Monte Bibele, near Bologna. Here a Celtic-Etruscan village was active during IV-III century B.C. It appeared important to characterize the pottery finds in order to recovery information regarding the provenance or the artefacts and the technological processes that were used for their production. According to the archaeological literature, the fragments belong to the ceramic category of the so-called "buccheroide" or "bucchero padano". As regards the provenance, compared with local clays the chemical composition supports a local origin of these ceramics produced using a non calcareous clay from the so-called "red beds" or "variegated clays", of Oligocene-Miocene age, outcropping nearby the archaeological site of Monte Biblele. at least two firing technologies were used in order to obtain artefacts for several uses or satisfacting different aesthetical requirements.
