A web-based digital archive focusing on the Italian villa to facilitate teaching and learning about historic landscape sites and subjects in undergraduate and graduate courses.

In Fall 2002, the Bard Graduate Center introduced a unique graduate-level concentration dedicated to preparing students for careers as teachers and scholars of landscape history and as professionals in the field of historic landscape preservation. To further the goals of the program and the growing field of landscape studies, the BGC seeks to develop a freely accessible, searchable archive of digital images of historic gardens and landscapes and as accompanying educational wesite featureing textual materials and clickable plans. The BGC requests funding for the first stage of the archive, a pilot project that will focus on the Italian villa as a Landscape Type. The intellectual content of this teaching tool will be developed in collaboration with numerous scholars in the field, who will also contribute images from their personal slide collections. These photographic images will be supplemented by engravings from rare books, which will be made available by participating institutions.
