The Center for Fine Arts in Brussels (BOZAR), the Mies van der Rohe Foundation in Barcelona and the University of Naples Federico II, with the support of the European Commission (Creative Europe), began the project in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, and continues in 2019 to stimulate meetings between contemporary artists, young architects, students and the public in general, enabling a promising intergenerational and international dialogue.

These houses, often built by the most avant-garde architects of their time and in which some of the most innovative personalities of Europe lived or gathered, were privileged witnesses to the intellectual effervescence of Europe at various times of its history
