Report During my two stays on Ischia in the Gulf of Naples I had the opportunity to examine X-ray-analysis with bronze-objects called “Fibule”. These objects have been imported or locally produced on Ischia. The diffusion of object-designs gives us a preliminary impression of the connectivity in the Iron Aged italic peninsula. The aim of my project was to understand the composition of the alloy of the “Fibule”, to understand which objects have been imported or locally made. I analysed more than two hundred pieces in the deposit of the Museo Archeologicodi Pithecuae . Within my analysis I found a homogenous group of“Fibule”, which seem to be produced in the same Workshop on Ischia.
