The Civitella Ranieri Foundation opens the doors of its 15th-century castle in rural Umbria annually for four six-week residency sessions of self-directed studio and work time. Each residency community brings together 12–15 accomplished international artists, composers, and writers at emerging and established moments in their careers. They are joined by a limited number of invited Director’s Guests to foster a robust contemporary dialogue that transcends disciplines and geography. A Civitella Ranieri Fellowship changes lives, develops permanent connections, and refreshes the work at hand.
Fellowships are awarded through a careful nomination and jury process by a rotating group of distinguishedartists, academics, and critics that ensures access to a highly diverse group of emerging and accomplished candidates from around the world. Recipients receive round-trip airfare, room, and board.
Civitella Ranieri Foundation, Inc, is a nonprofit 501(c)3 operating foundation with administrative offices in New York City.
