Providenza is an agri-cultural project and studio space in the mountains of Corsica, located in the area originally called the Ghjuncheto.
It is designed to inspire and produce new works at the intersection of arts and sciences, nurtured by a powerful living environment, with a natural focus on sounds and images.
Founded by filmmaker Antoine Viviani, who decided to transform an abandoned family farming land by putting it back into production in 2015, it is now a hybrid space, evolving throughout the year: a private studio for a small community of artists, a laboratory for experimenting and learning through a program of courses and workshops with international pioneer artists, as well as a shared open space for residency programs built with European partners.
Concurrently, the farming activity develops its own cycle throughout the year, with fruits and vegetable gardening allowing the opening of its own restaurant in the summer.
The different activities all connect together through the production of a series of events, a Festival as well as other specific manifestations.
