Recent excavations at Pianosa, a very small island situated in the middle of the northern part of the Tyrrhenian Sea, have brought to light a Neolithic settlement, that can be ascribed to the so-called “Middle-Tyrrhenian Impressed Ware” and “Linear Pottery” cultural facies of the Early Neolithic. Some peculiar characteristics of the assemblage of cultural remains must be pointed out, like the very broad provenance area of the raw materials (e.g. obsidian, flint and quartz, granite and greenstone), and the remarkable quantity of ornamental objects. These aspects testify to intense contacts throughout the Tyrrhenian Sea, and suggest that Pianosa may have been an important harbour along the exchange or trade routes.
