Discovering the Cultural Heritage of Rome


Concept by Pietro Antichi

Rome, also known as the Eternal City, is a treasure chest of majestic monuments, hundreds of churches, and spectacular fountains that shape its stunning skyline, making it the city with the highest concentration of historical, archaeological, artistic and architectural heritage in the world.

The course will accompany the participants to discover the astonishing cultural heritage in the city, which will be taken as an example to explain the principles of Cultural Heritage Education (CHE).

This approach promoted by the Council of Europe aims to incorporate heritage education more effectively in school curricula in order to raise awareness of common history and values among the younger generations and strengthen the sense of belonging to a shared European cultural and political space.

Because of the immersive first-hand approach of this course, students will strengthen their visual and critical thinking skills, delving into a broader range of knowledge about the protection and valorization of cultural heritage to seek a European identity that ties itself to common and tangible roots.

The course provides a guided tour in the city center that emphasizes the stunning monuments such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the grandiose archaeological area of Fori Imperiali.

The course program offers entrance to various museums and/or the most beautiful churches which may vary depending on the exhibitions open and the museums’ offerings.

Field trips with Fere were great. Also discussing and sharing information about our national heritage was also motivating and interesting.
