Residency and retreat in Italy La Macina di San Cresci
Find inspiration in the timeless Tuscan countryside! Live and work in the shadow of the oldest church in all of Chianti, built in the 10th century, painstakingly restored by two lifelong art lovers skilled in design and architecture. La Macina di San Cresci overlooks the classic Tuscan town of Greve in Chianti and is located just a short drive from Florence and Siena. La Macina di San Cresci is a unique place where artists can live and work together in historic buildings surrounded by gorgeous hillsides dotted with vineyards and olive groves. La Macina offers guest artists the chance to recharge and reset by enjoying walks in the countyside, moonlit dinners in the garden with plenty of delicious food, wine, and friends, and a spacious studio to create new work. La Macina operates year round and accepts residency applications on a rolling basis (there are no deadlines!). At La Macina, artists can find whatever sort of process they need; we have a thriving and close-knit community made up of visiting artists and local friends, but there is plenty of peace and quiet for those who seek relaxation and escape. Residents can take classes in fresco, watercolor, Florentine artisanal upholstery, paper decoration, and more. Artists will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on outings to local sites with cultural and historical significance. We are happy to arrange other activities, like Italian language lessons and cooking classes. We actively promote the work of all our artists through exhibition, open studios, and features on our website and social media. We also publish a yearbook called “The Artistic Time” in order to share the work of all our resident artists with our network. Partners and families are welcome!
For further information please visit our website where you can find a gallery of pictures and videos of the residency, a list of exhibitions and past guest artists, and you can browse our yearbooks and read testimonials in the Guest Book.
