The Atelierhouse Sciaredo in Barbengo/TI can be rented.


The «Casa Sciaredo» is an atelier residence.  That means that its first priority is its support of all visual artists, covering the whole spectrum of today’s forms of expression; from painting to object art and sculpture, photography, video, film, to design and architecture, as well as all crossover media (including text). We also consider artists working in other creative fields, such as literature or music, and even persons engaged in scientific research in a cultural context.

The foundation prefers tenants that plan a stay of several weeks (4 weeks minimum) or months.

If there are several applications for the same time, the decisive criterion is the artistic quality (judged on the basis of a dossier or a website). The decisions of the foundation are binding and will not be justified to the applicants.

The rent

In the high season – from March to November - the rent is CHF 425 per week (all included).  In the winter months the rent is CHF 355 per week. Cost of wireless internet and telephone will be charged separately (CHF 78 per month).

In addition a deposit in the amount of a one months rent is required and is paid back at the end of the stay, after deducting the costs for telephone and internet. The deposit has to be paid at the latest one month before the beginning of the rental period. With the signing of the rent contract the agreement becomes definite. In case of cancellation, the foundation keeps 25% of the deposit. If the cancellation is made  two weeks or less before the beginning of the rental period, the foundation keeps the entire deposit, as the existence of the house relies on the income through the rent.

The accommodation is modest, but includes all necessities. There is central heating, a washing machine as well as internet access (WLAN), but no TV. A housekeeper in the village manages the moving in and out of our guests. Some independent garden work is appreciated, but not mandatory.

Cars cannot drive on the road to the house. Parking places are available at the nearby cemetery.
