UNA RESIDENZA TUTTA PER SÉ | A RESIDENCY OF ONE’S ONE
In 2021, Maja Arte Contemporanea hosted its first Residency; the initiative was generously sponsored by art collectors Umberto Morera and Anna Maria Balsano Morera.
Henceforth, the month-long residency will become an annual appointment. It will take place in Romazzano, a town 8km from Todi (Perugia, Italy), in either May or September.
In keeping with the gallery’s aim to take action and concretely support rising female artists, the residency accepts applications from women exclusively.

Una Residenza tutta per sé / May 2021
One needs time to pause, to get lost, to lose oneself.
In the light that enlivens shapes, touches the color in a face, or a flower, or a place. Allowing myself to be lost in the wonder and bewilderment that emerges from the world’s lands, nature, human beings. In the thoughts, the stars, the clouds; in the lives of others; within memories. Trying to absorb the myriad stimuli and the beauty of the world to then describe it, revisiting it through the artwork, the image… finding myself.
Todi: Lost within a room of one’s own… found within.
– Anna Di Paola
