The Italian Academy

The Italian Academy is one of the world’s leading centers for advanced research in the humanities and sciences. In addition to a long-standing focus on the arts and pioneering sponsorship of the sciences, it foregrounds global social issues, often as they impact Italy and America.

McKim, Mead & White’s historic 1927 Casa Italiana is the setting for the Academy’s conferences, concerts, films, and exhibitions. 


Fellowship Program

The core of the Academy’s work is its Fellowship Program for scholars. The distinctive Humanities and Neuroscience Project includes an annual conference on cutting-edge neuroscience research.

Other Initiatives

Other initiatives include the Compagnia di San Paolo Italian Academy Distinguished Visiting Professorship; the Academies Project at the Italian Academy, supported by the Kress Foundation and the Warburg Institute; and the Advanced Program of Ancient History and Art, which sends students to work at Hadrian’s Villa near Rome.

Cultural programs include a series bringing world-class Italian music to New York, as well as the Premio New York for promising young Italian artists.
