The backbone of Società delle Api is an ongoing program of residencies at the venues in Grasse (FR), Rome (IT) and Kastellorizo (GR), three very different environments immersed in specific cultures and landscapes. The residency is intended as an occasion for research and production. Each artist is invited to extend the invitation to one or more other persons with whom they wish to collaborate. The residency represents an opportunity to both focus on and expand one’s practice and network while having a more tailored approach to art and participation.


Research is the core aspect of Società delle Api’s approach. SDA actively promotes and supports research projects across different disciplines, investigating issues and questions inherent to our contemporary world.

SDA values and welcomes research projects both within and outside Academia, as it adopts both inter-subjectiveand common models, as well as subjective and nonnormative strategies that can help interpret and revise given methods and processes. The art collection of Silvia Fiorucci Roman is open for researchers, artists, curators and scholars as a point of departure for research and experimentation.
