The “2nd Rupestrian Archaeology International Congress – Archaeology and Rock Art, Europe, Alps, Valcamonica” wants to draw the international scientific community’s attention to the importance for the historical studies of Rupestrian Archaeology, which is a term adopted from 1989 to indicate the sector of archaeology that studies Rock Art. The idea of setting the study of Rock Art in an archaeological frame of reference originates from the need for a more careful analysis of the iconographic rupestrian heritage. This cultural and chronological placing has become necessary for all those scholars who, working in the field of symbols, ideologies and rituals want to put these in a context with a major scientific credibility. The Congress addresses all the scholars interested in this field, asking them to participate with a paper in the sections pointed out, and also those who think that their research in the field of archaeology, ethnography, history of religions or similar can help to better define the chronological, interpretative or methodological aspects of the European Rock Art, with particular attention to the Alpine range and to Valcamonica.
