POPOLI

- Welcome / Benvenuti -

Residencies programs give artists and writers the opportunity to live and work outside of their usual environments, providing them with time to reflect, research, or produce work.

 

Where study abroad programs afford young people the time and resources to focus on their work, we welcome artists of all levels and provide them a space where they can create a deep, meaningful and transitional impact on their life and work.

 

Hosted by Karin Giusti Studio, our residencies are curated with the intention of carefully suiting individuals to the unique environment and resources we can offer in Popoli, a medieval town with the springs of Pescara rivers a stone throw away from the studio.
