The project is located in Baixi, a place of considerable naturalistic value locatedwithin the municipal perimeter of the city of Genoa. Its secluded position, while remaining in close contact with the urbanized area of the Pegli district, has preserved a suggestive natural environment closelyrelated to the presence of the river, the adjacent wooded area and small nuclei of rural construction.

Constantly urged to inhabit the digital, we find a moment to focus on the essential meaning that matter has and on the ambivalence generated by its being the starting point and arrival of infinite transformations.

  • organizational and technical support

  • meetings, workshops, visits
  • support to facilitate exchange with local interlocutors or institutional counterparts in this area
  • an event at the end of the residency period open to the community

Participation in the selection is open to Italian or foreign artists who have reached the legal age. The artists who adhere to the proposal will have the opportunity to develop the project fora sculpture or installation that will be permanently positioned in the external area of the association (forest, meadow, stream) in a position to be agreed upon jointly.
