French Academy in Rome – Villa Médici

Since 1803, the Villa Medici hosts French Academy in Rome, which is dependent on the French Ministry of Culture. Its main mission is to welcome artists and researchers.

It launches exhibitions and cultural events, it also keeps a great collection of artworks from Fernand de Medici, director’s collections and boarder’s works. The entire Villa is surrounded and full of pieces of art (the interior and the gardens): precious furnitures, tapestries, design and artistic goods, musical instruments, drawings, paintings, sculptures, prints, etc.

Pascal Gautrand was a boarder at the Villa Medici in 2008 and 2009, as a fashion designer he talks about fashion and know-how in an artistic way but also in an intellectual way.
