La Macina di San Cresci



The Residency offers opportunities to work away from the constraints of everyday life.
La Macina di San Cresci Program is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established artists and share collegial interaction within a small community of artists.

Residents stay with us from 7 to 90 days, with a possible time extension subject to availability.

Applicants must submit a proposal of work they would like to accomplish during their residencies. Proposals may include specific projects to develop or complete (e.g. a book, film, composition, artwork, etc.) or research into a particular topic or issue.

During the residency, discussions are held regularly so that artists have the opportunity to present their work to the group. These project discussions serve as an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange.
La Macina staff work closely with each resident to facilitate the space, knowledge and collaborative opportunities with artists, curators, local residents and other organizations necessary for their work.

At the end of the residency, we can host an Open Studio day, open to the general public. This is a great chance for the artists to share the work done during the residency with a broader audience who is made up of professionals, art lovers, neighbors, friends.
Exhibition and public talks takes place at discretion of the La Macina staff and in agreement with the resident artist.

At La Macina, artists can find whatever sort of process they need; we have a thriving and close-knit community made up of visiting artists and local friends, but there is plenty of peace and quiet for those who seek relaxation and escape. Residents can take classes in fresco, watercolor, plaster casting, paper decoration, and more. Artists will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on outings to local sites with cultural and historical significance. We are happy to arrange other activities, like Italian language lessons and cooking classes.
We actively promote the work of all our artists through exhibition, open studios, and features on our website and social media. We also publish a yearbook called “The Artistic Time” in order to share the work of all our resident artists with our network. La Macina di San Cresci cooperates with some Art Galleries/Art spaces in Florence, where it is possible to organize exhibitions for our artists.
