Peccioli Summer School

Project Details


As a result of an exciting partnership between the University of Portsmouth and Peccioli town council, various academic members of staff visited the town of Peccioli in Italy, accompanied by 24 students from a range of subject disciplines. Students worked in multi-discipline collaborative groups of four to explore a key challenge affecting the environs of the highly innovative and forward-thinking town of Peccioli. Their remit was to produce a final 'provocation piece' after four weeks, supported by a range of academic members of staff from throughout the university.
