Civitella Ranieri Foundation invites about 12 to 15 Fellows for each session for a residency Fellowship of 6 weeks. The Fellows are chosen through a competitive nomination and jury process for each discipline; visual arts, writing, and composing. Fellows are given free time and space to work at Civitella, and are also encouraged to participate in excursions through the Umbrian countryside, take Italian classes, and give presentations about their work while at the castle. The Foundation pays for all major expenses for all Fellows who are our guests. This is the nature of our commitment to international artists, writers, and composers. The Fellowship, paid for in full by the Foundation, includes travel, room and board, studio and work space.
