The Real Academia de España en Roma was established in 1873 and has since played a major role to many generations of Spanish and Latin American artists and intellectuals.

So far there have been 988 fellowship holders who have had the opportunity to live in Rome and devise projects in which the exchange of experiences between the different disciplines, ages, and backgrounds has been materialized in a plethora of works of art, compositions, and publications.

Today, it is a center for cultural creation and innovation in which artists and researchers develop projects whose results are disseminated internationally. They have the outstanding opportunity of living together in an exceptional monumental complex—9000 square meters surrounding a Renaissance cloister overlooking Rome—headed by Bramante’s masterpiece, the Tempietto di San Pietro in Montorio (1502).

This environment, together with the institutional dynamics and the wide spectrum of disciplines that it admits, the high level of the professionals who apply and those who access the fellowships, and the synergies and interdisciplinary feedback between them and both spanish and local institutions, make this fellowship to be currently considered the best in the public sector of our country in the field of culture.
