Stone Oven House is about an existential framework for life and work for professional artists and active people, striving for harmony with the environment. Here, the boundaries between art and reality are blurred. The daily routine turns into art and vice versa.
The project is realised in a traditional stone house, in Rorà – an old Italian village, in the Alpine foothills.
This is a project aimed at supporting contemporary authors, working in the fields of visual art, music, design, sound art, video, literature, theatre and cinema. Here artists can focus on their work staying in the workshop, or in the open air, in any place of the two hectares of the territory. Artists are provided with an accommodation in private or shared bedrooms. The residents also have access to the workshops, living rooms and other common spaces, kitchen and household appliances. The curators help to find the necessary materials and arrange PR. The program doesn’t cover the travel and food expenses, but sharing economy practicing in the Stone Oven House gives possibilities to minimise the costs.
Beside artists, Stone Oven House also welcomes a limited number of guests who is interested in an unconventional stay, connecting with nature and creativity. In fact community life join together artists with the other residents, with the purpose to create a more diverse human environment. For guests there are individual and shared bedrooms with everything needed for a comfortable stay. In exchange for the hospitality, guests can support the project with their help or with financial contribution.
