Residenza Lago Scuro is a self-directed Interdisciplinary residency offering creatives the chance to explore their practice, exchange ideas, and make work while living on, and learning about, a beautiful regenerative farm in Northern Italy. The program emphasizes the exchange between practitioners of the cultural and agricultural arts, and the value that is created when different minds and like-hearts come together and collaborate in a space dedicated to nature, nourishment, and creativity.

Local Information

Cremona, Italy Cascina Lago Scuro is a home, farm, dairy, vegetable garden, laboratory, and restaurant. The property dates back to the 18th century, and is comprised of many distinct environments: the church, the farmer's house, the manor house, a Neo-Gothic courtyard, the stables for horses and cows, and the dairy. A garden rich in oaks, magnolias, hazels and other tree species surrounds the rear of the farmhouse; its infamous bell-tower preserving the atmosphere of an imposing, ancestral manor. Lago Scuro was born from the will of Fabio and Paola who, in 1990, returned to the farm from city life to do what they call ‘real agriculture’ - using biodynamic farming practices to grow organic, sustainable, and quality food. Their son Luca with his wife Federica have carried on the tradition and have since grown the Cascina to become a place of continuous transformation and innovation.
