The Résidence Pro
is an educational programme created in 2021 for students in vocational and agricultural high schools in France, with the aim of supporting high school mobility and promoting the artistic and cultural development of young students.
Each year, in partnership with one or more French regions, Villa Medici welcomes 300 high school students for a week’s immersion in Rome to take part in a programme of workshops, conferences, visits and practical experiences on a theme related to the fields of excellence of the vocational courses. The programme brings together teachers from the participating schools, a network of regional companies contributing their expertise, as well as speakers and facilitators from various backgrounds (journalists, art historians, artists, entrepreneurs, etc.).
For its first edition in 2021, the Résidence Pro
is conducted in partnership with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region and focuses on the forestry-wood sector, from cabinet-making to forestry and wood construction.
