The Institute

last updated 06/04/2021

The Istituto Italiano di Antropologia (ISItA) is a scientific institution based in Rome. It is the continuation of the Società Romana di Antropologia, founded by Giuseppe Sergi in 1893 (see below). Every three years the members of the Institute (see below) elect the ISItA council which includes a president, a secretary, two vice presidents, two vice secretaries, eight councilors and a treasurer.

The objective of the Istituto Italiano di Antropologia is to promote an interdisciplinary approach to anthropology which encompasses a synthesis of the biological, social and cultural aspects of the human evolution.

The activities of the ISItA include the:

· active promotion of research in the field of Evolutionary Anthropology, with a particular attention to interdisciplinary approaches;

· flagship initiative Oasis (Open Access Institutes), a set of integrated actions aimed at developing and implementing an Open Data model which covers all the activities of the Istituto Italiano di Antropologia including the web site Opening Science to Society and the online digital archives Anthro-DigiItdoc and Anthro-DigiItdata;

The ISItA supports the initiative Manifesto della diversità e unità umana (english version), started in 2018, eighty years after the publication of the fascist Manifesto della Razza. The ISItA position on the use of the term race is made explicit in a statement approved by the council in 2014 (Italian version).

The ISItA has signed the Berlin Declaration in 2014. An Open Access policy regarding scientific publications, research activities and other institutional initiatives has been adopted in 2015 (Italian version)
