2022 CE Courses
Since 2014, the Civita Institute has been a Provider of the AIA CES and has offered an annual series of professional Learning Units for architects and anyone with an inquiring mind. This year as part of our 2022 Virtual Fundraising Gala, the Civita Institute is offering a series of four AIA Continuing Education sessions in a virtual format, available as an addition to Gala registration.
The four pre-recorded, on-demand sessions will be viewable for 1 month following our Virtual Fundraising Gala (March 20–April 20). Not overly technical, these sessions will be enjoyed by anyone interested in creativity, education, cultural exchange, Italy, and Italian hill towns. Visit our website for complete descriptions.

Civita Institute Partners in Design Climate Action Fellows, 2020
Using design directed research from the presenters’ 2020 Civita Institute Partners in Design Climate Action Fellowship, this seminar will explore new models of architectural design that incorporate principles from historic Italian Hill Towns and transform buildings and developments in the U.S. into cutting-edge architecture. Early modern examples in the U.S. and 17th and 18th century examples from Italian Hill Towns illustrate design principles that have been woven into current work by the presenters. The ubiquitous use of the air conditioner in the 1960s contributed to sprawl and a general decline of design excellence in architecture. Through examples of early modern architecture in the U.S. and historic Italian Hill Towns, we will illustrate how passive principles can inform design excellence, meet climate goals, enrich lives and create a sense of place.
