PREFACE
Recently, the history of Alexander and his Successors has attracted growing attention of modern academia. The Hellenistic world is not viewed anymore as a moment of decadence after the splendour of the Greek Classical age, enlightened by Athens bright star, but as an engaging example of ante litteram globalization, the essential premise to the development of the Roman Empire. We have consequently considered opportune and significant to organise a conference meeting devoted to Alexanders Legacy.

We would like to thank all of the Italian and foreign Colleagues who have so valuably contributed to the success of our project. We would also like to thank the young scholars who have promptly examined through their posters some specific matters. A heartfelt thanks to the Dipartimento di Storia, Archeologia e Storia dellArte of our University, as well as to the Department Chair, Professor Giuseppe Zecchini. Without the support of the Department, nothing would have been possible.
Finally, we are grateful to our Colleague Alberto Barzano and to Dr. Monica DAgostini, who have effectively helped us to overcome the unavoidable linguistic difficulties.
