Bogliasco Fellowships to Italy

The Bogliasco Foundation offers fellowships at The Liguria Study Center for the Arts and Humanities, located on the southeastern city limits of Genoa, Italy. Fellowships are granted to qualified persons doing advanced creative work or scholarly research in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture and landscape architecture, classics, dance, film, history, literature, music, philosophy, theater, and the visual arts.

Fellowships usually have a duration of either half a semester (six to seven weeks) or one month. Most scholars will use their time at the Center to finish projects for which the basic research has already been done, bringing with them the materials that they require to complete their work. In addition, Bogliasco Fellows will have access to the ten major libraries in Genoa. Persons working with primary sources in other parts of Italy may be able to use the Center as a home base, taking advantage of the rapid train service that connects Genoa to such important cultural centers such as Turin, Milan, Florence and Rome.

Bogliasco Fellows and accompanying spouses are provided with living quarters and full board during their stay at the Center and are assigned private studios. The cost of transportation to and from Genoa is the responsibility of Fellows, as are personal expenses, including the purchase of materials and supplies. Children and pets are not permitted at the Center.

Deadlines for applications are: February 1, 1999, for the fall semester beginning in September, 1999; and May 1, 1999, for the spring semester beginning February, 2000.
