Program Description

Rosa di Tufo is the ancestral home of the DeVito family, recently converted into a Bed and Breakfast. We offer reduced rates for artists in the form of a residency--$150 per week, or $550 per month. This residency is truly remote--not only is Tufo seated in a rural area of Southern Italy, the house itself is internet-free. (There is a 24-hour cafe down the street that offers wifi for free and espressos for eighty cents.) As Tufo is a small town (pop. ~1,000), its residents won't miss you. They are generally welcoming to artists, and will often engage with you in town and, sometimes, invite you to enormous, late dinners.
