Each paper must submit a text file (maximum 15.000 characters including spaces and footnotes), a file with the list of captions and a folder containing all the images (maximum 8).
The text file (.doc o .rtf) must include:

Example: RossiA_A2_fullpaper
The file is to be saved also in .pdf format.
The author must keep a copy of all the documents submitted.

Text formatting should be avoided as much as possible. It should particularly be avoided the use of tabs, indents, line spacing, bold and underlined letters. The use of Italics and small capital letters should be limited to the cases included in the following paragraphs.

Submission of the contribution implies that this work is previously unpublished. Authors must guarantee, moreover, that the content and images published are not subject to copyright. Particular care should be taken to cite sources and any works by other authors; all citations must be duly checked by the author.
The Organizing Committee reserves the right to request the author, if needed, to make changes/additions suggested by the referees.

    Quoted passages of a certain length will be set in a smaller type than the text itself. It is advisable to format them in a smaller type compared to the text without using the inverted commas. Short Passages, included in the text, are to be contained within double commas on the line (« »). If these passages contain other citations these must be distinguished with double quotation marks (“ “).
    Single quotation marks (‘ ’) are to be used as previously explained. Eventual omissions of cited passages are to be indicated by 3 dots within square brackets […].

Notes are to be marked in chronological order beginning with number 1, chapter by chapter: the reference numbers must be indicated as exponent, without brackets, and following any sort of punctuation:
Eg.: «la citazione del verso,1 anche se frammentaria, …».

The use of italics should be limited to:

  • foreign words not in common usage and for ancient languages;
  • titles (and sub-titles if any) of books, films, paintings, etc.
    Bibliographical quotations in the notes must be complete in every detail and precisely:
  • small capitals, beginning with a large capital letter, is the type used to identify authors (not the editors, prefacers etc who will be indicated in normal print). At least for the first mention it is preferable to write the forename in full: in following citations the initial is considered sufficient.
    For miscellaneous works avoid using the abbreviation “AA.VV.” (or similar) which has no bibliographical value, and indicate the title of the volume or the surname of the first author followed by ‘et alii’;
  • the title of the volume in italics;
  • any indication to the volume in roman numerals omitting the word vol.
  • the place of publication; number of the edition, if it is not the first publication, in Arabic as exponent to the year quoted (eg. 19322); the number of the related pages;
  • the name of the publisher and, for antique volumes, the printer;
  • the date of publication;
  • any eventual series to which the work belongs, in round brackets and commas on the line, giving the number of the volume in either roman or Arabic numerals;
  • a mention of the page (p.) or pages (pp.) (the actual page numbers in roman numerals will be stated in small capital numbers). This information is to be separated by a comma that can be omitted between the publisher’s name and the date of publication;
  • the total number of pages of a book must be an even number considering the last even numbered page, even if it be blank.
