Program Description

La Macina di San Cresci offers artists an opportunity to work for an extended period of time in a social environment that is rich in history and surrounded by nature, the Chianti landscape is possibly the best-known of all of Tuscany. The relaxed atmosphere and the splendid historic building, form an exciting combination.

La Macina di San Cresci cooperates with some Art Galleries/Art spaces in Florence, where it is possible to organize exhibitions for our artists.
