Welcome to the BSR

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 BSR.

They still are.

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.

Christopher Smith, Director of the BSR
