Program Description:

4-week long self-directed residency for professional artists in rural Central Italy.

33OC is a non-profit association, a theatre and a community located in Toffia, a small medieval village perched on a rock 60Km NE of Rome. Our small artist-run residency program offers professional artists the time and space to work in the pastoral landscape of Sabina region and to explore the lesser known rural culture of Italy. The residency is located in a deconsecrated 13th Century church - currently an active theatre and in its adjacent building. Artists are offered access to the theatre, multi-purpose workspaces, and shared living spaces.

Each residency period concludes with an Open Studios day, an occasion for the artists to display the work produced while in residence and to share their experience in a casual encounter with the public.

We accept only online applications made via the link provided here, available also on our website. We do not accept applications via email. There is a 20 Euro application fee.
