Art Aia - Creatives / In / Residence is an international art residency located near the comune of Sesto al Reghena in the north-eastern Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia.It's a place for artistic production and research that focuses on the development of the creative process and facilitates cultural exchange across borders. Art Aia - Creatives / In / Residence is located three kilometers from Sesto al Reghena, in the locality of "Banduzzo" (which in local dialect means "Place Banned") and from the mid-nineteenth century has been an agricultural center of the Morassutti Family. In the garden of Art Aia - Creatives / In / Residence stands the nineteenth century Church of St. Anthony of Padua, erected by the owners of these lands and it contains the contemporary altar-piece which represents Saint John the Baptist and Saint Antony of Padua. Aia - Creatives / In / Residence currently promotes cultural and artistic activities at a local and international level. In the past few years several teaching artists have been collaborating with the venue like American Master Drama Teacher John Strasberg, son of Lee Strasberg, who held two International acting workshops as well as Italo-Palestinian artist Mustafa Sabbagh who taught a photography masterclass in 2014. Several artist collectives have also been hosted in the center like Marsala 11 and the Institut für Alles Mögliche of Berlin among others.

The fact that people come to a place, where everyone makes that commitment, and they are in the country just changes the atmosphere of work so there is a kind of relaxation and comaradery that is very special. It is a special place.
