A Place to Think… A Place to Learn… A Place to Save.
The intensity of living, studying and working in the densely layered historical center of the Eternal City makes for a life-changing educational experience. Since its mythical beginnings 2,766 years ago, Rome has been the center of a continually evolving empire. It is the largest archaeological site in the world, and a leading producer of contemporary art and architecture. It is at once a small town and a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with nearly five million residents.
The American Institute for Roman Culture is headquartered in the heart of Rome. AIRC administrative offices are located at Largo della Gancia, 1 Int. 8 (by appointment only). Teaching facilities primarily are located at the ACCENT International study center in the historic Campo Marzo district, near Piazza Navona. These include meeting and seminar rooms; WiFi hotspots and computer stations and a rich and growing library of publications on the Eternal City’s archaeology, architecture, art and history,
Students enrolled in AIRC’s academic programs also have access to studio and classroom spaces in various nearby venues—from foreign institutes to private palaces.
