Working in Peccia

The Foundation provides each artist with an Atelier and a large outdoor workstation with a 20-tonne crane for their work, for common use. Three workshops with professional equipment, machinery and tools for working with stone, wood and metal are also attached.

The workshops are structured as autonomous working units. In accordance with the Foundation's aims, the priority work is marble from Peccia. Obviously there is the possibility of using other types of stone or materials such as wood, metal, plaster, clay, paper, etc.

Life in Peccia

Every artist is given the opportunity to live in a studio inside the Casa degli Artisti in Peccia, just a few metres from the Centro. There are five units in this house. Each unit has its own shower/wc and a small kitchenette. A large kitchen is available for common use. Food costs are not covered by the Foundation.
