The Bogliasco Foundation supports the arts and humanities by providing residential fellowships at its study center in Italy’s most vibrant, historic crossroads, a place where gifted artists and scholars of all cultures come together to connect, create, and disseminate significant new work.
To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its fall 2020 fellowship program. The program awards one-month fellowships to individuals of all ages and nationalities who have made significant contributions in the arts and humanities. Fellows live and work in bucolic surroundings on the coast near Genoa, Italy, a place where natural beauty combines with an intimate group setting to encourage inquiry and transformative exchange across all disciplines.
The foundation awards approximately sixty fellowships per year to individuals doing creative or scholarly work in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture, classics, dance, film/video, history, landscape architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theater, and visual arts.
Fellowships cover room and board but do not provide for travel or a living stipend. Fellows are assigned private work spaces equipped with ample work surfaces, a desktop computer, a printer, cabled and wireless Internet service. Some of the studios include special amenities; the Visual Arts studio, for example, includes basic equipment for painting, sculpture, and graphics, the music studio is equipped with an upright piano, keyboard, and a recording/playback system, and the four-hundred-square-foot dance studio features a sprung floor with Marley, a sound system, a small work station, and optional 10’ by 7’ high mirrors.
Students currently in a degree-granting program are not eligible for this opportunity.
See the Bogliasco Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
