Giovanni Morassutti-Founder.

Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence was founded by actor Giovanni Morassutti, which is also the artistic director of the cross-disciplinary artist residency program open every summer to international artists that can spend time to focus on their creative process in the various working spaces at their disposal  like the Art Aia studio, the garden, the multi purpose and cross-diciplinary art centre (in progress), the Art Aia rehearsal space, the fields and the vineyard where installations and performances can be realized. The cross-disciplinary artist residency often culminates with an exhibiting event open to the local public.
