Ecole française de Rome

EFR

The Ecole française de Rome is a public institution under the Ministry for Higher Education and Research. Originally the Roman branch of the École française d'Athènes (1873), and then briefly operated as a School of Archaeology (1874), it was founded under its present name in 1875 and installed in the Palais Farnèse, which it now shares with the French Embassy in Italy. A centre for French scholarship in Italy and the Central Mediterranean in the fields of history, archaeology and the social sciences, the School operates within the framework of research programmes and initiatives conducted in collaboration with French and Italian partners as well as institutions in North Africa and countries bordering the Adriatic (Albania, Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia). These initiatives give rise to academic exchanges within the framework of workshops, seminars, and conferences, PhD programmes, and the organisation of exhibitions. The school welcomes members, post-doctoral and visiting scholars, and scholarship students.
