Welcome to the BSR
A Message from the Director:
By the end of June we would normally have held our final Fine Arts mostra of the academic year and been fascinated by the lectures of our award-holders in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Sadly, COVID-19 had other plans. However, we have still been very active, as our increased and increasing on-line activity demonstrates; and we hope that you enjoy exploring and revisiting our collections and resources.
We wish all our friends and supporters a restorative summer break and look forward to opening our doors again in September.
Welcome to one of the most prestigious research academies in Rome. For over 100 years world-class researchers of the art, history and culture of the western Mediterranean and the best contemporary artists in the Commonwealth have been nurtured at the British School at Rome.
We are the bridge between the intellectual and cultural heart of Rome and Italy, and creative and academic researchers from Britain and the Commonwealth. We celebrate these achievements, and welcome you to begin to explore what the BSR can offer you, and how you can be a part of a very special place.
