Artists Residence Programs

Ortolan Studio offers artists of all levels and disciplines the opportunity to live in the exclusive surroundings of our Palazzo, and take advantage of our fully equipped art studios.


  • This unique opportunity allows artists to fully immerse themselves in their courses without having to worry about organizational details (accommodation, tours, transport, etc.)
  • Upon completion of their course, artists will also have the chance to exhibit their work in Ortolan Studio’s in-house art gallery, either individually or in collaboration with other artists
  • Applications are welcome from artists of all levels, working in all fields of Visual Arts – painting, sculpture, illustration, design and photography


Artists are provided with:


  • Unlimited use of studio space, library and private terraced garden as well as free Wi-Fi Internet access
  • Exquisite private accommodation at Palazzo Galletti B&B in the historical heart of the medieval town of Serravale.
  • Half board accommodation on request; traditional Italian home cooked meals using local seasonal ingredients served with a broad selection of wines.


The palazzo’s idyllic setting provides artists with a unique, tailor-made experience in ‘real’ Italy.


Artists Residence applicants are requested to submit their curriculum vitae, a project proposal (including dates and length of stay).

Every year, Ortolan Studio offers a limited number of scholarships. Please do not hesitate in contacting us with any enquiries.
