I Tatti has initiated the I Tatti Artist in Residence Program in the spirit of Berenson’s vision of I Tatti as a space for the study of cultural history “founded on direct and loving contact with the work of art,” and in recognition of the indispensable role of contemporary artists in celebrating and challenging our understanding of the past. The residency is aimed at visual artists, architects, writers, filmmakers, composers, musicians, performers, critics and curators, who may benefit from being in Italy and connecting with I Tatti’s group of scholars working in the fields of Italian and Global Renaissance as well as its reception by and impact upon modernity.
Residents are nominated and selected by a rotating jury of international scholars and artists who are familiar with I Tatti and its mission, chaired by I Tatti’s director.
