The ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius and the Gerda Henkel Stiftung invite the participants to investigate the historical urban architecture and the ever-changing urban structures. Participants’ contributions in politics, theory, literature, art, music, and film will provide a comprehensive and in-depth view of the history and the extraordinary character of Rome. Through discussions and the physical experience of the urban spaces, the summer school aims to make participants aware of Rome as a whole, both as an architectural and as a represented space.
