Santa Sabina Monitoring Project 

Through an agreement with the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Art Conservation students at Trinity College Rome Campus  contribute to the conservation of important monuments in Rome by spending class time  doing hands-on, survey work in the nearby 5th century Basilica of Santa Sabina. Led by their professors, both of whom are professional conservators, each semester Trinity College Rome Campus students produce an official report on the state of conservation of different sections of the church, which will later be used as a resource for future restoration projects on the site. 


The center, the “Ex-Fenile,” organizes courses for local children and adults, puts on cultural events and provides various types of social support for the neighborhood. LaPe, a laboratory of Ethnographic skills housed within the ex-Fenile center, hosts undergraduate and graduate students from Rome’s Tor Vergata University. Trinity College Rome Campus recently signed an agreement with LaPe, which gives our students the opportunity to carry out field research in the social sciences at the lab as part of an internship experience or on a volunteer basis for future initiatives.
