With 148,000 students and 4,500 teachers, the Sapienza University of Rome is one of the 100 most important universities in the world. It is the largest University in all of Italy and one of the largest in Europe.
DigiLab, the newly-formed Centre for Research on Digital Arts and Humanities, puts together twelve departments from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and the Faculty of Engineering (Computer Science). The new department provides a unique environment for exploring fundamental research and practical applications that stem from the rich interplay between Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences. Research at the DigiLab comprises interconnected developments in an unusual range of disciplines, such as arts, humanities, archaeology, anthropology, music, new media, computer science, 2D-3D design, interactive cinema and television, new forms of storytelling and new approaches to research and teaching. Our educational approach hinges on the unique combination of learning-by-doing with a solid theoretical base. Attention to the latest developments in technology and the fostering of teamwork and collaborative projects are two of the distinctive traits of our institution. DigiLab staff have taken part in a number of FP6 and FP7 European Projects such as SEWASIE, DELOS, Interop, WORKPAD, SM4All, APARSEN, ECLAP-The E-Library of Performing Arts, Linked Heritage.
