Big news! The new home of Circolo Scandinavo is now located on the Aventino, across from the church of Santa Sabina and its orange gardens. We have now moved the entire library, the furniture and artcollection to our new residence, and are in the process to get everything sorted. 


The newly renovated house hosts private rooms with bathrooms and will provide working spaces and common areas for social interaction. During the month of September the gardeners are working on our private garden. The garden includes several terraces and will be available for the artists in residence and allow for guests and events.


The Aventino Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome, offers a calm and green surrounding in the middle of the city. The area is known for its charming location and atmosphere. Down the hill you will find the Testaccio neighbourhood with its cultural life and broad variety of restaurants. Circo Massimo, Forum Romanum and the Palentine are located on the other side. The new location is well connected by local transport such as metro, buses and tram, and easily accessible by direct train from Fumicino airport.


We are excited for this new chapter and hope you want to join us on the journey! 


retake a place - reuse a space







Our great Icelandic group flew in to Rome to participate in Stalkers "Spontaneamente", a three day adventure hike, with the aim of discovering new sides of Rome. On the picture the Icelanders and Stalker talk about their participation in the Southicelandic Biennale as part of the project "retake a place - resuse a space".
