Genoa Summer School – 2nd edition
The second edition of the Genoa Summer School will run thanks to the financial contribution of the EU Community that will cover the costs for both the teachers and the students involved. There will be fourteen teachers from different European universities, who will alternate in the teaching. This year’s topic is the renovation of the former psychiatric hospitals of Genoa, one in Quarto dei Mille, one in Prato Zanino. The students will design their new buildings inside these developments of the 19th Century. Four (4) ECTS points will be available. A jury will evaluate the final projects.
The Genoa Summer School will start on Monday July the 21st and end on Saturday August the 2nd. Students must arrive in Genoa on Sunday July the 20th and leave from Genoa on Sunday August the 3rd.
