Program Description

Live in a beautiful environment, produce works in a historic building, meet friendly community. An unique experience: focus on your work , share experience, enjoy our amazing area, but there is plenty of quiet for those who seek relaxation and escape. Residents can take classes in fresco, watercolor, Florentine artisanal upholstery, paper decoration, and more. Artists will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on outings to local sites with cultural and historical significance. We are happy to arrange other activities, like Italian language lessons and cooking classes. We actively promote the work of all our artists through exhibition, open studios, and features on our website and social media. We also publish a yearbook called “The Artistic Time” in order to share the work of all our resident artists with our network. La Macina di San Cresci cooperates with some Art Galleries/Art spaces in Florence, where it is possible to organize exhibitions for our artists
