Residency in the Roman countryside

c.r.e.t.a.

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.

The residency includes accommodation in a one-bedroom house with a garden complete with fruit trees. This is a particularly good option for artists working on collaborative projects or who seek tranquility for writing. Resident artists can bring their spouses/companions and/or families (supplemental fee).

Residents have a well-equipped private studio. For ceramic artists, there is access to both electric and gas kilns, with options for reduction firing.

"We provide a weekly shopping run, technical assistance in procuring materials, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond."

For ceramic artists, the facilities include a professional electric wheel, a spraying booth, several low-fire kilns: an electric 150lt kiln, a 500lt. gas kiln, a 100lt luster kiln, 2 raku kilns (60lt and 120lt), and a high-fire kiln (60lt). Artists are encouraged to submit a proposal for a final exhibition to display the work created during the residency period.

The final exhibition will be held in the c.r.e.t.a. rome gallery in c.r.e.t.a. rome's studio in the historical center of Rome, just minutes from Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline museums on one side and the Pantheon on the other.

"We offer a number of additional perks such as help with travel arrangements, such as airport pick-ups, museum reservations etc. We can also arrange optional day-trips to museums and sites in Rome and beyond. If there are workshops offered during the period of your residency, you will have an opportunity to participate at a reduced rate. ​
