In the first years of the nineteenth century, Napoleonic laws established the basis for a radical reform in the field of the professional training of engineers and architects. Nonetheless, in the following period of Austrian Restoration, no effective legal provisions were adopted. In newspapers and journals, there was an articulate discussion of intellectuals, engineers and architects, who were interested in formulating concrete legal provisions. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the debate continued in the National Congresses of Italian engineers and architects. The debate — structured around the alternative between creating new higher technical institutes on the university level on the one hand, and on the other, strengthening the old Fine Arts Academies — did not end in the nineteenth century. Only in the following century with the Gentile Law (1923) was the sector of artistic instruction substantially — although not definitively — reorganized through the introduction of higher institutes of architecture on a university level and, on the secondary school level, the redefinition of artistic lyceums and fine arts academies.
