Course objective
Rome is the city par excellence to study the complex interrelations between urban development, politics and the preservation and transformation of cultural heritage. The aim of this course is a better understanding of the historical roles that cultural heritage has fulfilled within the broader framework of national and European identity construction. Next to that, the students develop their own view of how ancient and recent heritage can be preserved and transformed within a setting of urban dynamism and rapid transformations.

Course content
Rome is one of the oldest cities in Europe and its cultural heritage embodies classical and modern ideals, which have left their imprint on the city. But its appearance and structure are also shaped by the daily realities typical of an ever expanding Mediterranean metropolis. Rome is a city of contrasts where old and new, past and present, come together and sometimes clash.

Deadline: 13th of January 2019.
