The residency programmes

The French Academy in Rome welcomes artists, authors and researchers from all disciplines throughout the year to carry out a specific project of creation, experimentation or research for periods not exceeding six months, in the framework of various thematic or partnership residency programmes.

Moreover, the French Academy in Rome develops several specific programmes for young students:
– the Résidence Pro, for young people from French highschools, in cooperation with several French regions
– the Résidence de Découverte, for young people from art schools, carried out jointly with the Fondation Culture et Diversité

Finally, in partnership with the three other French residences abroad, Villa Kujoyama, Casa de Velázquez and Villa Albertine, Villa Medici runs the post-residency programme ¡Viva Villa! to support artistic events involving its former residents.
