GCI Senior Project Specialist Jeffrey Cody was awarded the American Academy in Rome’s 2015–16 Rome Prize Fellowship in Historic Preservation and Conservation for his project “Conserving the City by Understanding Its Built Landscape: The Analysis of Urban Form by Saverio Muratori, 1910–1973.” He will research Saverio Muratori’s methodology of “typomorphology” as it relates to Italian cities, particularly Rome and Venice after World War II, and through a better understanding of Muratori’s methods adapt those methods to urban conservation in non-Italian contexts.

The Rome Prize Fellowship annually supports advanced independent work in the arts and humanities in a unique residential community in Rome. Rome Prize winners are selected by independent juries of distinguished scholars and artists through a national competition process in one of the eleven disciplines supported by the Academy.
