Based at the first floor in the last railway station still active in south-east Italy, Ramdom is an interdisciplinary project that supports experimental educational formats (DEFAULT) and research projects on the topic of the so-called Extreme lands (Investigation of the Extreme Lands).

Experiencing a geographically and anthropologically peculiar place is a fundamental part of the research itself. The Residency is in this sense a fundamental tool to start an autonomous or guided reflection on specific topics.

We are extremely happy to announce that with the new residencey plan, the opportunity to reach us and share a path with we will stay open and available the whole year.

Ramdom has always supported the research for artists through projects of various kinds (Default Investigation of the Extreme Lands) that have have been realized during the years.

From now on the research and residencies plan expands throughout the year and is open to professionals from all disciplines: artists, curators, researchers, writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, professionals of scientific disciplines and hikers.

In addition to Lastation and the use of equipment that already exist, we provide three possible options.
