General information

Brief description of organisation

The International Art Residence PRO VOBIS is operating in ASSISI since 2002 as an art school for painters and turned into a full Art Residence in 2014 under the advise and recommendation of French and Italian Artists .

The PRO VOBIS Art Residence has now the pleasure and the pride to offer to all Artists from all over the world its services and facilities (8 double rooms , Atelier), settled in a magnificent environment. A truly good opportunity to find an ideal place capable to offer the conditions needed to get a peaceful mind to create.

ASSISI, Unesco World Heritage, is the place were also great artists as Giotto, Cimabue, Raffaello, Pinturicchio, Simone Martini, Piero della Francesca and many others found inspiration to create masterpieces universally admired.

One of our goals is to stimulate the creation of art works that are encouraging the transformation in the thinking about nature and attitudes to nature; our daily choices should conciliate a sensitive artistic approach with that of the spirit of Saint Francis of Assisi recognised as being the world’s first ecologist.
