THIS EVENT STARTS AT 6:00 PM
The arts and humanities define who we are as a people. Mark Robbins, president of the American Academy in Rome, will discuss the impact and the role of the Academy in providing unique and necessary support for American and Italian artists and scholars -- as well as Dutch, Russian, Australian and Syrian affiliates -- who live and work in a broad interdisciplinary community in Rome.
We can think of the Academy as a kind of cultural infrastructure for the United States, Italy and beyond, supporting the best intellectual and creative work across disciplines, languages and geographies. Rooted in the densely layered city of Rome, the work produced at the Academy crosses all boundaries and has an impact for generations.
The American Academy in Rome is an open place of production and discussion and now more then ever, their work depends on the interchange between nationalities and disciplines.
