This summer, in partnership with RISD’s Global Partners & Programs office, RISD|CE is offering a new program housed in the historic Palazzetto Cenci – the 16th-century palace in the heart of Rome that’s home to RISD’s European Honors Program (EHP). Called Mapping Foundations: An Uncanny Exploration of Rome + Its Environs, the three-credit course is being taught by RISD alum and adjunct faculty member Nick DePace BArch 95, a former Fulbright Fellow who knows Italy well and has served as EHP chief critic.
Students will delve deep into the city’s architecture and history by exploring ancient aqueducts, cisterns, catacombs, quarries and other wonders of the natural and built landscape. Excursions to the outlying areas of Latium and the Bay of Naples will provide additional context.
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you’re interested, don’t procrastinate. Find all the details here.
