VOLUME I - Spoleto
Residency dates: 11th June - 6th July 2018
Artists: selection process
The first volume will be held in Spoleto, an ancient city surrounded by hills in the region Umbria. Spoleto is recognized as a world heritage site by Unesco and renowned for the Festival dei Due Mondi, held every year during the summer, since 1958. The artists are invited to reside in the 14th century Franciscan hermitage of Santa Maria Maddalena, situated in Monteluco, a limestone mountain covered by woods.
Volume I will be focusing on the suggestive location of the hermitage, the story it tells and the collaboration needed to coexist in such a unique place.
