The Lessons of Rome (6th edition)


March 24, 2023 – Lyon Museum of Fine Arts

The Lessons of Rome aim to propose a space for reflection for anyone who grasps Italy as an architectural, urban, and landscape research laboratory. Defining Italy as a laboratory involves analyzing contexts of urban policies but also as design experiences, theories, practices, legacies, mutations, and prospects. It means building knowledge and culture, learning and developing tools to conceive the present and to enrich contemporary practices.

The Lessons of Rome provides the opportunity to be kept up to date on current and upcoming research, to share existing and generate new knowledge and dialogues with Italy. Professionals, students, Phd candidates, researchers, and people from various academic disciplines, schools, and nationalities are welcome. The Lessons of Rome is a study day organized in partnership between the Ecole nationale supérieur d’architecture de Lyon, the LAURE, the Institut Culturel Italien of Lyon, and the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts.
