THE NEW GRAND TOUR
The New Grand Tour, conceived and designed by the French Institute of Italy (IFI) / French Embassy in Italy, is a residency project for young European talents. It is implemented on the Italian territory through a network of partner institutions, including Corte Ospitale. This large-scale artistic program, which is one of the main themes of the Quirinale Treaty, promotes cultural dialogue and European values of exchange and sharing.
This project stems from a desire to inaugurate a contemporary form of the 18th-century tradition of the Grand Tour, which allowed young Europeans to travel from city to city discovering artistic heritage. This New Grand Tour will offer selected young artists the opportunity to be accompanied in their creative process, without production imperatives, and thus to be connected with various local cultural actors.
The New Grand Tour is a multidisciplinary program that targets artists from all areas of creation: visual arts (painting, sculpture, photography, audiovisual, etc.), performing arts (theater, dance, circus, performance, music and sound creation), as well as ICC (fashion, design, architecture and landscape, gastronomy, crafts).
The Corte Ospitale hosts in artistic residency Teddy Bogaert with Fuga Mundi project.
