U of A Rome Center

Located in Palazzo Taverna, one of the most prestigious palaces in the heart of Rome and former headquarters of the National Institute of Architecture (IN/ARCH), the University of Arkansas Rome Center immerses fourth-year architecture students in a full semester program that offers courses in architectural design, architectural and urban history, historic preservation and Italian culture and language. As part of the program and curriculum, students participate in several day trips and work under the direction of Davide Vitali, an Italian architect who oversees the program. Students participating in the Rome program also have the unique opportunity to benefit from faculty from local partner universities, and participate in workshops and seminars with international students.
