Baldric of the American Academy in Rome

The Rome Prize is an American award made annually by the American Academy in Rome, through a national competition, to 15 emerging artists (working in architecture, landscape architecture, design, historic preservation and conservation, literature, musical composition, or visual arts) and to 15 scholars (working in ancient, medieval, Renaissance and early modern, or modern Italian studies). They are announced annually in New York City.[1]

Rome Prize winners go to the American Academy in Rome, established in 1894 and chartered by an Act of the United States Congress in 1905, on the Janiculum, Rome's highest hill.

Fellowship winners come to Rome to refine and expand their professional, artistic or scholarly aptitudes, drawing on their colleagues' erudition and experience, as well as on the resources of Rome, Europe and the Mediterranean.

The Academy offers the opportunity to examine at first hand the source of Western humanistic heritage, and to engage in a dialogue with Rome's culture. Time spent at the Academy—stimulated in part by varied walks, talks, tours and trips, a stream of international visitors and spontaneous table talk—allows residents to enter into informed discourse with this past and to draw upon it for their individual explorations.

The Academy's main building contains most of the studios, studies and residences of the Rome Prize winners, the library, dining facilities and administrative offices, as well as exhibition galleries, communal spaces, a dark room and archaeology facilities. The Academy has extensive gardens and additional buildings.
