UNIDEE in Residence is an international program open to artists, 
professionals, students and graduates of various university faculties 
from any country in the world.
UNIDEE offers an experience unlike anything offered in any other 
university or academic program: a research-oriented practice that 
operates within each discipline and is directed towards the 
responsible transformation of society and the creative activation.
The UNIDEE programs are directed by Michelangelo Pistoletto. The 
course in residency include an active participation in meetings and 
seminars hold by experts and professors of various humanistic, 
scientific, economic, political, artistic and social disciplines.
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.
The work of the UNIDEE residents involves constant interaction with 
the offices of Cittadellarte, which put the program of responsible 
social transformation into effect through projects developed in 
conjunction with public and private institutions, companies, cultural 
bodies and economic and production structures.
All the events in the Cittadellarte program - exhibitions, 
conferences, performances and workshops - offer further opportunities 
for the residents to explore issues and develop ideas.
At the end of the residency, the ideas that have been generated are 
presented publicly at the UNIDEE in progress exhibition-event.
