The summer school will take place in Alghero, at the Faculty of Architecture (Asilo Sella, Lungomare Garibaldi).
Alghero is a real town, rich in history and inserted in an environmental context of great quality. The old town, at the end of the twin gulfs of Alghero and Porto Conte, with the towers and city walls is from Aragonese period. Alghero, or l’Alguer in the Catalan language, is an island within an island also from a linguistic point of view. It is a place of many cultures, Catalan and Sardinian first of all, but also of Ferrara and Istria in the nearby village of Fertilia and in the post-war reclamation settlements.
