IEREK organizes the 2nd international conference on Utopian and Sacred Architecture Studies to be hosted in one of the most spiritual cities, the city of Naples. Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban areas in the world which makes it a prime example that contains real-life models of sacred architecture, spiritual buildings, and sites such as Pompeii, Amalfi Coast, Ravello, etc. To optimize the benefits of going through such an experience, visits to these cities will be designed alongside the conference's main activities.
Moreover, this conference's main aim is to explore the theories and practices stimulated over the last five centuries in a wide range of areas of thought, historiography, political sciences, social sciences, literary and art studies, social activism, and in the visualization of possible worlds. Thus, it is the optimum opportunity to address the disputations that surround Utopia and its successors from its origin to our present and explore the impact on and by the utopian religious, and cultural ideals.
