NOTICE: We are sorry to inform you that the Summer School "The City and the Water" has to be cancelled for this year.

The Summer School will be held in 2022.

New dates and new application deadline will be published in October 2021.

The International Summer School “The City and the Water” is a Design Full-Time Workshop, aimed at investigating the complex relationships between the built environment and the water, in its broadest meaning of environmental resource, andtherefore including seaside, rivers, lakes and water resources.

The Summer School is organized in two weeks and hosted in Padua by the Department of Civil, Enviromental and Architectural Engineering of the University of Padua.

Students will be engaged in the development of a project on a case study, with the support of teachers and tutors of the Universities of Pisa and Padua and visiting professors of other national and international schools of architecture and landscape design.

The Summer School is organized in two weeks. The first week is primarily aimed atthe critical reading and knowledge of the area chosen as a case study, in order to identify its value and criticisms. In the second part, students will work for the development of a project of enhancement of the area chosen as a case study.
For the whole period, lessons will be opportunely organized in order to give theoretical and methodological supports for the development of the projects.
The ideas and drawings elaborated during the International Summer School will be presented in a public exhibition.


The summer school aims to provide theoretical skills and methodological tools for the landscape design. Students, organized in groups composed by members of different nationalities, will be asked to develop a project of enhancement for an area chosen as a case study. The internationality of the group of students is fundamental for promoting cultural exchange and comparison, also in terms of approach, between different experiences in the field of landscape conservation and enhancement at an international level.
