About the Swiss Institute in Rome

Since the late 1940s, the Swiss Institute in Rome has welcomed art and research fellows to pursue their research activities and hone their skills in the Eternal City. Every year, the Swiss Institute in Rome continues to welcome twelve art and research fellows for that purpose, in addition to its fostering and facilitating of cultural and scientific exchange between Switzerland and Italy.

As part of its extended portfolio of activities, the Swiss Institute in Rome will also be welcoming 'summer schools' at Villa Maraini, its stunning venue in the heart of Rome. Summer school projects from all disciplines are welcome provided that they 1) offer its participants a new perspective on Rome or Italy more broadly, and/or 2) foster interdisciplinary art-science collaboration.
