Humanities & Neuroscience Project

Since 2001, the Academy has developed seminars and public events designed to spread word of scientific advances and to bring together researchers in the sciences and the humanities. (A "Humanities & Neuroscience Fellowships" page details our support for researchers doing ongoing studies.)

Advanced Program of Ancient History and Art

An international summer course of advanced education created by the Academy and by the University of Rome's H2CU. APAHA trains junior scholars in advanced approaches, with first-hand exposure to archaeology.

Compagnia di San Paolo Professorship

This Professorship is held by a distinguished visiting scholar from Italy in the fields of History of Art, Musicology, and Italian Studies, teaching within Columbia departments.

The Academies Project at the Italian Academy

This project, APIA, is the first website entirely dedicated to the history of scholarly and artistic academies from the Renaissance onward. APIA aims to organize scattered data about academies, their members and their output; to create a network of scholars and readers; to enhance the contemporary conversation about the significance of academies; and to build on their lively patrimony of intellectual innovation, discovery, and creativity.

Law and its Manifestations

The Academy, in conjunction with the Heyman Center for the Humanities, supports research and seminars to look at law and its images, and at the relationship between law and nature in theory, philosophy, history, and religious thought. (View details of the 2011 and 2012 conferences supported by the Academy.)


An agreement with SISSA, the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in Trieste, includes an exchange of visiting researchers and cooperation on joint conferences designed to explore the content and evolution of the Universe, and particularly dark energy.
