Program Description

Thanks to our alliance with the Petrolio Network, our distinctive program offers 10-day residencies that are eligible to academic tutoring, finantial aid, and the anual Petrolio Award. Shorter or longer periods may be negotiated. We also offer priority short-term housing for scholars on sabbatical leave. La Casa Del Herrero is not productivity-driven. A thoughtful presentation of a work in progress, a unique idea or a well-documented project that feels true to your creative personality mean a lot more to our jury than an impressive curriculum or previous collaborations with big names. All meals and accommodation in private room with double bed are included in the fee (€35/day). Workplace options are available. Payment is required to confirm your reservation. Medical and other insurance, as well as transportation and materials, are the artist’s responsibility.
