See Old Nisa Bibliography: Publications of Centro Scavi di Torino and contributions of the members of the Italian Expeditions to Nisa.
The Nisa Expedition 2000 was a combined Italo-Turkmenistan mission. The mission had as its aim exploration of the northwest area of the round hall, to define its general plan, walls, and relationship with the round hall. It now appears that the area excavated this year is older than the round hall and the tower-temple. This place had never been excavated before, so it is a very important piece of the mission's goal to gain knowledge about old Nisa. It's still too early to give definitive conclusions about this mission.
The Mission 2000 excavations will continue until the end of August. But it is already possible to say that there are constructions in the north-west part of the round hall. We also found Sasanid and Parthian walls and pottery.
