The program will consist of two, two-week focused residency sessions comprised of environmental artists, landscape/garden designers and other visual, music and performance-based artists whose work engages the natural landscape.

Artists will be given space on the land to realize their environmental projects. They will also be provided with comfortable living quarters and meals for the duration of their residency."

"UNIDEE in Residence is an international residence program open to students and graduates of various university faculties, to artists and to professionals from any country in the world. It operates in synergy with the other Cittadellarte offices 
and is based on the following declaration by the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto: “Art is the most sensitive and comprehensive expression of thought, and the time has come for the artist to assume responsibility for establishing communication between every other human activity, from economics to politics, from science to religion, from education to behaviour, in brief all areas of the social fabric” (Progetto Arte manifesto, 1994 - see the complete pdf version)."

"The Potential Estate (2006-2009) is a collaborative research project and involves various artists who have been developing collaborative works with experimental and critical approaches on the issue of residence.

Potential Estate mixes artistic research and practice. Participants elaborate open proposals in the public space or for various institutions. Institutions are invited to collaborate and implement the project on location.

After an exploratory mission in the U.S., Belgium, a small suburban entity situated in Wisconsin – founded by their Belgian and Luxemburg ancestors, has been identified as a potential terrain for a residential-annex-exhibition-project."

UNIDEE in Residence is an international residence program open to students and graduates of various university faculties, to artists and to professionals from any country in the world.

The growing interest in researching and developing ideas in all sectors of society is not interpreted by UNIDEE in generic terms but as the need for a creative contribution to transformation in all areas of activity. Work is grounded in an imaginative and research-oriented practice that operates within each discipline and is directed towards the responsible transformation of society.

UNIDEE residents live and work on the Cittadellarte site, a pleasing example of industrial archaeology, and participate in courses, workshops, public meetings and exhibitions.

The residents work individually or in groups to develop ideas and projects, working along creative lines pertinent to the following fields: Art, Communication, Ecology, Economics, Education, Work, Nutrition, Politics, Production, Science, Spirituality.

Programs are directed by Michelangelo Pistoletto.

The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
