The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, located in Bellagio between lakes Como and Lecco in Northern Italy, offers scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers and practitioners a serene setting conducive to focused, goal-oriented work, and the unparalleled opportunity to establish new connections with fellow residents, across a stimulating array of disciplines and geographies. The Bellagio Center community generates new knowledge to solve some of the most complex problems facing our world and creates art that inspires reflection, understanding, and imagination.
The Center sponsors three kinds of residencies—for scholars, creative artists and practitioners. Scholarly residencies last four weeks. Projects in all fields are welcome, but there is particular interest in innovative projects that address one or more of the Rockefeller Foundation’s five interconnected issue areas: basic survival safeguards, global health, climate and environment, urbanization, social and economic security. Applicants are also selected for diversity to ensure that interdisciplinary and international connections remain an integral part of the Bellagio experience. In addition, the Center offers collaborative residencies for two to four people working on the same project.
It is a wonderful opportunity to interact with scholars, artists, policy-makers, etc., from around the world. Past participants have included Nobel laureates, MacArthur Foundation grant recipients, Pulitzer Prize winners, artists, composers, government officials, and others.
While the Bellagio Residency Program does not offer a stipend during the residency, it provides all needed facilities and meals during the residency at the Center; a limited travel assistance program from countries like Ukraine is possible.
