Accademia di San Luca, Rome
Ninety years after Gunnar Asplund’s Italian journey, Nordic and Italian scholars gather in Rome to explore exchanges between Nordic and Mediterranean architectural cultures. Carnets, sketches, drawings, photographs, reports, letters and journals are studied to investigate the effects of architects’ travels between the North and the South across centuries. The symposium takes place at the Accademia di San Luca, 14th to 15th November 2013 as one of a series of collaborative events between Italian and Nordic schools of architecture. Scientific committee and chairs: Antonello Alici (Ancona), Luca Ortelli (Lousanne), Mari Lending (Oslo), Johan Mårtelius (Stockholm), and Aino Niskanen (Helsinki).
