Residency for artists in Tuscany

The arts need help!

A dream began 20 years ago.

When we came to live at San Cresci, the architectural complex was in ruins, the church was falling apart and everything was desolate. We loved this extraordinary place, and in fifteen years of restoration, following the rigid requirements of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, we restored it to its former glory, thus exhausting all of our personal funds. Into the restored spaces we made the residence for artists, a place for contemporary art with a strong interest in the environment and heritage.

The arts needs help!

A dream began in the 1991.
When we came to live at San Cresci, the architectural complex was ruining, the church was falling apart and everything was only desolation. We loved this extraordinary place, and in fifteen years of restoration, following the rigid requirements of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, we reported it to its former glory, thus exhausting all of our personal funds. Into the restored spaces we made the residence for artists, a place for contemporary art and with a strong interest in the environment and heritage.
We organize exhibitions of local and international artists, theatrical and musical performances and conferences.
Our goal now is to accommodate each artist for free here.
Unfortunately now we cannot do this for cost management, we currently have no support from either public or private institutions, but with your help this could happen soon.

Your donation of any amount will help to promote and support La Macina’s programming, to grow the organization and build La Macina’s reputation as a center for contemporary art.

Your contribution will directly support residencies for artists. Gifts of all sizes are welcome, necessary and truly appreciated.  
A Fellowship covers the costs of a single residency for a period of up to one month, including the use of a studio, accommodation, and stipend to cover the meals and living costs,  and the benefits of a dynamic community of artists working in many disciplines.

The mission of the La Macina di San Cresci  is to support the creativity, to be a refuge for the artists to spend quality time on their work in a setting of great natural beauty.
Donors will be acknowledged on our website and in written materials.

We are a cultural organization non-profit. That means we will send you a nice thank-you note for your contribution and you may deduct the amount from your taxes.
Every gift makes a difference in the lives of emerging artist!
 Please consider a contribution to La Macina di San Cresci  today.

 In addition La Macina is grateful for contributions of books, recordings, films, slides, and works of art to add to our permanent collection and made available to artists-in-residence. If you would like to donate a gift in kind, please contact us by email at info@chianticom.com
