The Romanian Academy in Rome is found atop the Pincian Hill. The villa that houses the Institute was constructed by Romanian architect Petre Antonescu, known for developing the national neo-Romanian style of incorporating folk architecture and craftsmanship of the olden days with new modern design. Along with being a cultural center for Romanians studying in Rome, the RA also offers Romanian language courses two hours a week for beginners and intermediates. But the real event worth putting in your calendar is their annual Spazi Aperti in June, where fellows and scholars have their work displayed in a themed exhibition. The event usually lasts around a week and is a great opportunity for new up-and-coming artists.
