Description of residency programs:
One of the main purposes of the new programs is to invite guests to daily experiencing the artistic and historical sites of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the natural environment of the sacred Mt. Subasio. To explore the town by walking “passeggiata” and hiking to the mountain, in harmony with nature, encouraging an
eco-friendly style of life.
From the historic center of Assisi it is also possible to reach, through a hiking path, or by bicycle, a small olive grove, located in the nearby countryside. This simple and Franciscan place offers moments of reflection and meditation, surrounded by olive trees and wild flowers.
Arte Studio Ginestrelle is located in Assisi city center, near the Cathedral of San Rufino. The location would be ideal for couples, as well as for colleagues or individuals.
Writing residency is suggested for individuals or couples, who desire to stay in the heart of Assisi, in a privileged position next to the Church of “Santa Maria delle Rose” and close to the Cathedral of Assisi “San Rufino”. The Roman Empire built a Temple (I century B.C.) on this site.
