Printmakers and their guests - at very reasonable prices - are provided with acommodation in a luminous independent apartment on the top floor of historic Villa Beltrami, with spectacular views over the surrounding hilltops, and unlimited 24/7 access to a workshop FULLY EQUIPPED FOR ALL INTAGLIO PRINTMAKING TECHNIQUES and B&W PHOTOGRAPHY.

“The TwoCentsPress residency at Serrazzano is a magnificently inspiring and relaxing haven. The peace and beauty of the place prompts creativity unlike anywhere else, and the hospitality is unmatched. A true retreat for artists hoping to get work done, and a spectacular vacation for the spirit.”

“Working together with Franco is a wonderful experience. He leads you to the process of cyanotype printing and showed us the beauty of nature and oldest way of photography. The beautiful village, tasteful lunch and working in a well-equipped atelier made this day for us perfect. Highly recommended.”
