_______BORGO DIGITALE is the SPRING 2021 Research Program of Syracuse University School of Architecture in Florence. This website will act as a shared research platform for our students as well as a way to reach wider audiences for the development of the work._________________________________________

___________________________________The program investigates the ongoing negotiation of local-historical traditions and global-contemporary values using Florence and Italy as site of investigation. Rather than focusing on static, monolithic imaginaries of Italian culture with their nostalgic drive, we are interested in bringing such histories in conversation with contemporary design practices and pedagogies___________________________________
