Faculty profile

Profile of the faculty

The Faculty, the first to be founded in Italy in 1920, has inherited the tradition of the Higher School of Architecture, based on the unification of the teaching of building, restoration, and urban planning. It has a diverse and rich faculty, with relevant personalities in several scientific fields. The large student body contributes to a vibrant environment, with a large number of cultural activities, such as in no other Italian architecture school.

"L'Universita degli Studi Roma III" was founded in 1992. It is the youngest university in Rome.

“Valle Giulia” has decided to continue the traditional 5-year architecture degree system, while also introducing a Bachelor-Master degree progression:
1) single-cycle, 5-year Master of Science programme, without intermediate degree, leading to a master (“Laurea magistrale in Architettura UE”)
2) a 3-year Bachelor of Science programme (“Laurea in Scienza dell’architettura e delle città”), leading to an intermediate degree, intended to continue with a master degree (2-year Master of Science programme, “Laurea specialistica in Architettura (Restauro)”).
Both master’s degrees grant admission to the Architect’s Chamber, which can be obtained after sustaining an exam.

In Italy, unlike other European counties, there is not, so far, in the building and urban sector, a university-trained professional figure able to carry out, along with the role of a traditional planner, a linking role between the planner and the client, between the local administration and the building firm, between the local administration and social groups, in the process relating to the planning of building projects and the transformation and recovery of the pre-existing patrimony. This new figure, complementary to that of the senior architect, armed with a specialist degree, is strategic in these very sectors. The profile of the studies – that foresee an integration of planning, humanistic and technical-scientific disciplines – will allow the creation of this professional figure with a strong multipurpose leaning, in such a way as to allow him/her to intervene autonomously, while understanding the problems of planning and its physical, economic and social impact, in agreement with other professional figures, in the complex task of planning the “new”, and of redesigning and recovering pre-existing buildings and structures.
Such interventions involve two principle fields:
– the planning, transformation, study and interpretation of works of architecture in their physical, static, historical-cultural, formal and functional characteristics
– the technical and administrative management of planning and building interventions, redesign, recovery and related activities.

Master of Science in Architecture (5-year programme)
The architect seeking an education is, simultaneously, the inheritor of the ancient mission of the planner, the interpreter of ways of living and building as well as being the up-to-date operator who is aware of the responsibilities that accompany planning today, as an act of transformation that impacts on the contemporary landscape and that is severely tested by the speed and extent of the phenomena of change.
Therefore he/she is a figure who represents the unifying moment of the various choices, the “director” of the different and ever-expanding choice of disciplines that can play an effective role in the transformation of the manmade environment, an operator who brings along with his/her craft that cultural knowledge, creative capacity and technical ability that have matured in various teaching courses and been worked on and tried out in planning labs.
The various disciplines related to the training (architecture, technology, structures, restoration and territory) are today called upon to bring their contents up to fate in the face of the new challenges of the modern world, in particular, the environmental and ecological emergency and the crisis in local cultures and of the links between society and places, paying attention to the themes of energy, ecological sustainability and semiotic importance. The five-year course allows the widest maturing, that is both balanced and progressive, with a dialectic comparison of the different aims in the construction of physical space, in different measurements and ways according to the scale and contexts.

Master of Science in Architecture Restoration (2-year programme)
It satisfies the qualifying educational aims of Class 4/S, with particular attention being paid to the means of intervention on the pre-existing architectural and environmental patrimony and to quality planning in new architecture. The specialist graduate will be a professional architect capable of planning and co-ordinating operations of planning, enhancement, modification or conservation of the physical environment, whether natural or manmade, mastering the instruments of architecture and engineering, as well as those related to the constructive feasibility of the idea. Furthermore, the graduate will have the skills and capacities that are necessary to plan and manage the different phases of new building construction, but also of conservation, restoration and adaptation of historical buildings and diffuse building, paying particular attention to their historical, landscape and environmental qualities. Such prerogatives will be accompanied and backed up by a profound knowledge of the historical-critical, compositional and morphological, constructive, technical, legal, economic-managerial and functional implications of these interventions. The task of these graduates will be to draw up plans and co-ordinate specialists and operators in the field of contemporary planning and in those of architectural restoration, building recovery, adaptation and caring for the environment, and, more generally, in the field of intervening on the pre-existent in a way that is historically and technically informed.

Specialization School in Restoration of Monuments
The School of Specialization in Restoration of Monuments (Beni architettonici e del paesaggio) provides professional preparation in restoration of ancient architecture and urban sites, with special attention to subjects as history of architecture, structural behaviour of traditional architecture, problems of decay and conservation of materials, theory and history of restoration, restoration project. The School offers a two-years curriculum, with an optional additional year dedicated to building site training and final thesis.
Doctoral School in Architectural Sciences
The Doctoral School in Architectural Sciences groups four distinct PhD programmes, all active in departments and centres of the Faculty of Architecture “Valle Giulia”:
– PhD in Architecture and Construction – Space and Society
– PhD in Energy Saving and Distributed Microgeneration
– PhD in Space and Furnishing Design
– PhD in Retraining and Recovery Urban Heritage
All PhD programmes are taught by high-level faculty from Valle Giulia, other School within “Sapienza” University and other universities. More information can be found on the School’s website at w3.uniroma1.it/sdsa

Through its departments and research centres, “Valle Giulia” carries out a vast and diverse range of research activities in the fields of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, architectural history, restoration, building technology, structural engineering, etc. Most of these are carried out through national, European and international networks. The School has activated a large number of international research and teaching exchange programmes with international partners in different fields.
