Institute

Because of the dynamic nature of cultural heritage and conservation we are constantly working on new projects. With each course and year we work on and conserve different sites, requiring flexibility and adaptability of our staff and students
 




 

 


 

The students will spend part of their time at the  renovated convent where the CCA is headquartered, for lectures and seminars. There they will experience the living culture of the Sabina region, the birthplace of the Roman emperor Vespasian.  They will learn about local products, traditional cooking, and olive oil and wine production. Evenings will be spent enjoying famed Italian cuisine shared on a terrace overlooking a beautiful valley in the secluded Sabina countryside, far from the tourist track but offering convenience to a wide range of celebrated cities and sites

Many of the students taking part in this course are experiencing Italy and travelling for the first time.  We want them to have as wide-ranging an experience as possible,  so, we organize many day trips.
Since 2011 we have visited Rome and Vatican City, Rieti, Tivoli, Venice, Assisi, Spoleto, Perugia, Hadrian’s Villa, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples, Ostia Antica, Palestrina, Sardinia...and many other popular destinations

This course is not only for conservators-in-training
We welcome all students interested in the program
