CROSS Residence is a project of artistic residences that insists on contemporary performative languages, within the varied reality of the CROSS Project. Starting from 2018, the CROSS-Residence project has been recognized as an “Artists in the Territories” residence center by the Piedmont Region and by MiBACT, confirming itself as a reference point for contemporary creation.

Thanks to the possibility of developing artistic residences all year round, also involving citizenship and the city, urban spaces and specific targets of public (young people, asylum seekers, weak groups, over 60, women, etc.), CROSS Residence is an always open window on the world, on experimentation and research, thus becoming a true kaleidoscope of experiences.

CROSS Residence is the program of artistic residences that privileges the relationship between artistic creation and the territory. The residency program acts as a real support tool for the production of the artists, through the possibility of declining the period of residence according to different types: call for proposals residencies, which interest the finalist artists of the CROSS Award, allowing them to develop the winning projects in residence; on-call residences, offered to artists close to the vision of CROSS Project, invited to develop projects in the area; trampoline residences, offered to young artists, giving them the opportunity to experience their language through the residence; technical residences, offered to artists who need spaces to perfect projects in the last stage of creation.

CROSS Residence favors innovative artistic processes based on transversal languages ​​and contemporary visions. It supports the work of artists and performers and is a constantly evolving project. The project is curated by Antonella Cirigliano, Tommaso Sacchi and Irene Pipicelli and every year it makes use of a group of Tutors who make their skills available to the artists and support the creation process.

The project takes place within the suggestive context of Casa Elide Ceretti in Verbania and involves different city spaces, including the Theatre ‘il Maggiore’, Villa Giulia and naturalistic spaces with a high cultural and landscape value.
