Residency in the Roman countryside

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 nearest train station is 2,5km. away. We have two bikes available for resident's use. From the train station there are regular trains that run to Rome in about 40 mins. There is also a shuttle bus from the train station to the town of Anguillara on the lake, stopping along the way at supermarkets, etc.

 

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.
