L´Appartamento Napoli provides residencies comprising live-in studio spaces in a shared environment, a social and supportive retreat environment in the heart of Naples, Italy.

During your time here, you are encouraged to create, research and be inspired by the surrounding environment, or be enabled to make use of your time and space in a new environment in order to pursue new or ongoing projects.

L´Appartamento is an ideal space in which to work in self-directed manner, in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere amongst other creatives, and discussion, collaboration, critique and the sharing of thoughts and ideas are welcome, though not expected if your working manner is more private.

Experimenting, emerging or established creatives may all apply.

Residency Programme since: 2019
Description of Organisation:

L´Appartamento is an apartment in an historic building in Naples, Italy, comprising the home of myself and two other large rooms, each 20-25sqm, to be used as live/work spaces. The artists and I share the home but each have their own private workspace/bedroom. A residency is of 2/4 week duration, and is intended to be a “retreat” space, in which to come to Naples for a creative “break”, to source inspiration, or to work on a particular project, in a self-directed manner. Though not required, the intention is to share experiences, feedback, skills, critique if requested, and in general, together create a home-away-from-home atmosphere that is professional yet warm, and promotes a tranquil working environment. I am here for the artists to help source connections, materials, sites, inspiration, and anything else Naples or the region has to offer that might assist the artists in realising their goals. Further information on the background of L´Appartamento may be found at our website.
