More than 40 years have passed since the last conference dedicated to the Prehistory of Liguria – the Riunione Scientifica of IIPP held in November 1973 - and more than ten since the Round Table of the XVI Congresso degli Antropologi Italiani that took place in 2005. Finally,on the 4th and 5th of February 2016,Genoa once again served as the seat of a meeting dedicated to the Palaeolithic and the Mesolithic. The call for papers of Genoa event was welcomed by numerous Italian and foreign colleagues. Over 200 colleagues participated, including European and American scholars, all of them being involved in projects focused on Italian archaeological contexts. The topics discussed spanned from the Lower Palaeolithic to the end of the Mesolithic and dealt with different issues (technology, functional analyses, zooarchaeology, physical anthropology, experimentation, etc.), highlighting the necessity to embrace an inter-disciplinary approach to our past. This meeting also underscored the liveliness of research on the Pleistocene and early Holocene of the Italian peninsula as a result of ongoing projects undertaken by different Italian universities in collaboration with foreign research institutions and with the involvement of numerous young researchers. Organising this event was possible thanks to the support of the Istituto Italiano di Preistoria e Protostoria, the funding and logistical assistance of the Dipartimento di Antichità, Filosofia, Storia (DAFIST) of the University of Genoa, represented by its president Prof. Michele Marsonet, director Prof. Franco Montanari, former director Prof. Roberto Sinigaglia, by technical office personnel (Anna Rita Calò, Marco Castoldi, Anna Vacchini) and by some of the undergraduate students in the Heritage Management program (Giulia Berruto, Silvia Caffarone, Naomi C hiampan, Chiara Dodero, Matteo Gullotto, Martina Parise, Caterina Piu, Elisa Ulmert). The event was also sponsored by the Associazione Italiana per lo Studio del Quaternario (AIQUA).
