Short-term artist residencies in the heart of the historical center of Rome or in the countryside just an hour from the city.
The non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts. Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond.
The historical center studio is located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in , just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Jewish quarter on the other. Housing is in apartments in trendy Trastevere or the historical center.
C.R.E.T.A. Rome's residency in the countryside is still in Rome, but lies on the border with the nearest town, Anguillara Sabazia, one of three Medieval towns on the lake of Bracciano. This option is particularly attractive for collaborative projects and/or ceramic artists who work with reduction firing as well as non-ceramic artists who prefer a private studio. Spouses/companions and/or children are also welcome (supplemental fee). Accommodation is in a 1-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio.
We offer artist residencies for ceramic artists, visual artists and writers for periods of 4 or 5 weeks. The residency periods can be combined, but the residency cannot exceed 90 days (for non-EU citizens).
The residency fee includes housing, use of the studio and our equipment, technical assistance and participation in a final group show.
