Study Tour to Rhodes
May 5-8, 2012
The students and architects of the courses held by Prof. Nina Avramidou (President of CICOP Italy) participate in the trip.
It is an architecture rich in genious technological inventions and scenic, scenic formal intuitions, proposed by a group of Italian architects who have been free to destroy and re-propagate the urban fabric of Rhodes. Other recent destruction and degradation have put at risk much of this shared cultural heritage.
The study trip is part of the study of this precious architectural heritage supported by CICOP Italy since 2002, the results of which are gathered in the three international congresses held in Rhodes (2002), Kos (2005) and Leros ( 2009) organized by CICOP Italy.
