Through an international open call, opened to multidisciplinary proposals, artists will be invited to spend residency periods in the 19th-century building, which has been abandoned in a state of decline for thirty years now. During the residency, selected artists will have the power to realize their artworks into the common spaces of the condominium, with the purpose of promoting its retraining and activating a dialogue among the different communities (and cultures) of its inhabitants. Winning projects will be selected by the tenants of the condominium mediated by a board of curators and insiders.
