    The article analyses the collaborations between the residents of Villa Medici in Rome and the members of the French School of Athens. Its aim is to render explicit how the revelations of archaeology, actively disseminated by members of the French School of Athens, the “Athéniens”, had an important impact on the approach of certain pensionnaires who decided to devote their envois to the ancient monuments of Greece. In parallel, the article intends to shed light on the methods by which the pensionnaires-architects of the Villa Medici in Rome appropriated the archaeological discoveries concerning Greek antiquities. Particular emphasis is placed on analyzing the impact of these exchanges between architects and archaeologists regarding the restored views of ancient Greek monuments by the pensionnaires-architects of Villa Medici. In parallel, the article pays particular attention to the analysis of the osmosis between architecture and archeology. The second half of the 19th century was indeed a time when exchanges and collaboration between archaeologists and architects acquired a dominant place, and Athens was the place par excellence where the meeting between these two fields prospered. During this period, collaborations between archaeologists and architects working on ancient monuments, in Athens or elsewhere in Greece, became very important. These collaborations have provided the foundations for works of major importance for the two respective fields, but also for the history of art in general.
