The U of A Rome Center campus is located in the prestigious Palazzo Taverna, situated within the complex of the only surviving example in Rome of a medieval stronghold that belonged to Giordano Orsini. Owned until the late Renaissance by the important noble Orsini Family, it was eventually purchased by other members of the Roman aristocracy. In the late 18th century, part of the area became Palazzo Taverna, named after the new aristocratic owner. The palace has two wings: Baroque and Empire, which still have the original decoration added in the 16th and 18th centuries, respectively.
The Gabrielli studios, on the ground floor of Palazzo Taverna in the Baroque wing, are used mostly for practical activities. They are set up to allow students to work on their projects with all the space they need, including printers, plotters, cutting areas and stationery materials.
There are meeting rooms, three large studios, toilets and a relaxation area. The facilities are a great area for students to work on their projects, and they can arrange their workstation to suit their needs.
