The Maison de l’Italie combines the rationality of the 30s with the grand classical tradition. It has several elements that are characteristic of this tradition such as the interior façade.
A painting by the futurist Mario Sironi (1885-1961), that decorated the house’s lounge, was sold in 1980 in order to fund the renovation works. The marble arrow in the entrance hall, was donated by the architect Portaluppi and comes from the top of the Duomo in Milan. It was damaged during the air raids in the Second World War.
Thanks to its 43 houses, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
Discover them in our cultural agenda CitéScope.
Every house runs thanks to a professional and dedicated team. Whether they are in charge of hospitality, planning, cooking, cleaning, maintenance or security, they are all committed to making sure that your stay in the building goes smoothly.
The campus is yours so take part in organising its social and cultural life! Residents are elected within your house every year. They take care of the organisation and representation of residents with the house’s administration. We also encourage resident engagement in collective projects and in the organisation of cultural and artistic events.
