An international jury announced winners of an art competition on UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the residence of the Swiss Ambassador Thomas Kolly on Thursday May 10. Each of the four winners and 25 finalists were given cash prizes, certificates and other gifts.

The jury highly commended “the European cooperation between the Italian conservation experts and the Greek Orthodox Monastery which was undertaken in close consultation with the Egyptian authorities and has resulted in high-quality conservation work on an element of such an outstanding World Heritage Site as the Monastery of Saint Catherine in Sinai. The documentation and quality of the work are exceptional”.

Problem-solving and improvisation were put to the test as students tried to use household materials (apart from Duck Tape) to create working models of their favorite Roman inventions for their final projects in Roman Technology, part of AUR’s Archeology and Classics program.   

The project was conceived and constructed by four artists of different nationalities, inspired by the challenges and fears that can emerge when sharing a common living space. Their work expresses their desire and need for a harmonious cohabitation. 
 

On May 7 and 8, a delegation from the American University of Rome visited Seeds&Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit in Milan. Seeds&Chips is dedicated to showcasing national and international talent and cutting-edge solutions from around the world to the problems of the Food System.

See photos below for a demonstration of the students’ creative talent in painting, print-making, ceramics and photography.

For the students, it was not only a chance to experience Fine Arts for the first time, but also Rome.
