Cattedra Borromini


With the establishment of the Cattedra Borromini, an annual high-level teaching post in the field of the humanities, assigned every two years, the University of Italian Switzerland, the Academy of Architecture and its Institute of History and Theory of Art and Architecture seek to emphasise their commitment to the human sciences, understood in the fullest sense, and support for the integrating role that they have always played in artistic and architectural creation. The Cattedra Borromini usually schedules two cycles of university lectures at the MSc level and a series of public lectures on a specific topic, the Borromini Lectures.
