The independent artist in residence program is located in Vairano, a hill sited village, close to the Lago Maggiore. It is initiated and run by a group of artists and designers, and housed in an old building from the 16th century.
The Sasso Residency offers artists, designers, scientists and other specialists a quiet environment to focus on their practical or theoretical work and to reflect new ideas and strategies. Individuals as well as groups and artist collectives can apply for a residency and spend four weeks or more in Vairano. Besides the regular residencies the infrastructure can be rent for a variety of purposes, like workshops, seminars and meetings. In that case please get in touch with us for further information.
