Brief description of residency program
Stone Oven House is a residence designed by artists for artists.

We support authors working in visual art, music, design, sound art, video art, literature, theater, cinema, animation and other possible areas of art.

We are happy to provide studios and exhibition spaces, help with project implementation, and arrange comfortable accommodation.

The selection of residents is carried out in two directions: young authors and professionals. This separation allows us to tailor the program to suit the interests of all applicants. Age limit for young authors: 35 years old. At the same time, authors under 35 with a professional portfolio can also apply as professionals.

The program does not cover the participants' daily expenses, but the sharing economy allows them to be kept to a minimum. Taking into account the financial difficulties of young authors, we calculate the joint budget in such a way that the amount of daily contributions for them would be adequate for student spending. Professional fees are marginally higher, with priority given to the choice of accommodation, workshops and exhibition spaces.

We are always ready to provide invitation letters for applying for financial support to foundations and relevant institutions.
Latitude and Longitude

Stone Oven House is an annual Interdisciplinary platform for professional and young artists that allows residents to implement their projects in a rural context of Italian Alps, in the historical community of Rorà.

Here, the dynamic and innovative mind of the city dweller meets the conservative reality of country life. Humanitarian knowledge enters into dialogue with worldly wisdom. As a result, the artworks created here reflect the rethinking of the approved values.

This artistic experiment plays the role of a bridge, restoring the lost ties between town and country.

The residence is also open to those who want to support artistic and environmental projects and are ready to experience the specifics of village life in the mountains.
