Villa Medici Festival des Cabanes

The French Academy of Roma – Villa Medici organises the Festival des Cabanes of Villa Medici every summer. The first edition will take place from May to October 2022.

The Festival invites architects, artists and researchers to make use of the historic gardens of Villa Medici, a setting with a remarkable arboreal heritage, the design of which was conceived by Ferdinando de Medici at the end of the 16th century.

Transient installations, micro-architectures, pavilions: several original creations of “cabins” take place throughout the summer in the gardens of Villa Medici, a place of investigation and experimentation where gardeners, architects, artists and thinkers meet.
