The non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in the historical centre of Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay is perfect to express the commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out c.r.e.t.a.'s main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts. Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond.https://www.cretarome.com/
