Our residency is open to artists, writers and scholars working in any discipline. Residents are provided with semi-private or private studio or workspace, accommodations and three hearty meals per day. Residents dine, live and work together and spend their days working in their studio spaces in the village or in the field during the week, while Fridays are devoted to weekly trips to allow residents to take in the rich legacy of Italian art. The schedule of trips changes weekly and includes Rome, Florence, Assisi, Perugia, and Orvieto, Arezzo and other nearby destinations.
Our residencies and associated studio workshops are designed with this legacy in mind. In a sense, we are later-day participants in the long standing tradition of the “Sojourn to the South”, a tradition embraced by artists ranging from Renaissance painter Albrecht Durer to later artists including French painter Corot, British poet Lord Byron and the American writer Mark Twain.
During one’s time here, you are free to draw upon the legendary landscapes of Italy for plein air painting, to work from the figure in bi-weekly model sessions, to articulate with the historical treasures of Italian art by making narrative work, attend materials workshops or to experiment with other ways in which being in Italy impacts your existing practice.
Our facilities include a printmaking studio, a clay sculpture area, easels and taborets for painting and drawing, a supply room, group classroom spaces, a library with a digital image data base and Wi-Fi, a weekly open figure studio and our Boca del Lupo gallery exhibition space. A twelfth century stone convent (called, Asilo, or “sanctuary”) functions as living space and a common area for evening talks. Every room in Asilo has spectacular views of the Tiber Valley. Residents are also housed in an 18th c. palazzo called Baccarelli or apartments in the historic village. Visiting Artists and Critics and resident artists give lectures in the lovely Teatro Concordia and are often available for discussion and critiques of resident’s work. Each session ends in a group exhibition in the gallery. We accept proposals for solo exhibitions as well.
