Primo Piano Special Project offers a residency and retreat program for artists in southern Italy (Puglia Region). Baroque Blue Ionian SeArt Residency is a multidisciplinary project created with the aim of providing a wonderful space for musicians, scholars, writers, painters and performers looking for a quiet place to work undisturbed on their art. The scenery and beauty of the region and the Porto Selvaggio Regional Reserve Park, as well as the history and comfort of the house/villa, offer an ideal environment to focus on creative work.

An immersive art residency that aims to provide its residents with a holistic experience, allowing them to completely disconnect from their usual point of reference and immerse themselves in the Southern lifestyle, the essence of which is beauty, simplicity, quality and tranquility. Salento with Lecce as its capital is a special part of Puglia, so well preserved that it seems like you have traveled back in time. The village of Santa Caterina itself dates back to the Neolithic period. The town was built on high ground, surrounded by olive and pine trees which make it an ideal environment for meditative excursions and exploration.

THEME – Baroque Blue 2024 with the residency project “Nature and Shamanic Cosmology”, proposes a journey between anthropology, archaeology, psychology and contemporary art to discover the fascinating world of shamans, through a multidisciplinary path that dialogues with elements of Apulian shamanism.

Divided into three sessions or worlds ( Lower World, Middle World, Upper World) , the residency offers artists, the opportunity to connect the Téchne, the spirit and the idea between shamanism and technology, proposing their art as a life experience, as an immersive sensory exploration through nature, applied to cognitive science.

All three worlds are interconnected from the central theme and offer the opportunity to the artist to be inspired by nature and by the places where the experience will be based.  Baroque Blue Ionian Se-Art Residency provides residency opportunities for accomplished and emerging artists/musicians/scholars from around the world. It’s the perfect space for creative minds in any medium to engage in cultural interchange and meaningful work that impacts the world for the common good.
