Il Vivaio del Malcantone is an independent space based in Florence, working since  2011 to promote performing arts, by hosting residencies and developing artistic training projects. The venue is an ancient Florentine home, a former green nursery all refurbished: the concept of “nursery” has passed from growing flowers to sustain the development of young artists, by facilitating their access to the art world.
Il Vivaio del Malcantone provides promotional support and its workspace for the artists interested in spending a period working in Florence.

(workspace of 60 squared mt, guesthouse of 40 squared mt for max 4 people, communication and promotion). The proposal can be suitable for international and Italy-based artists, individuals or groups, working in the fields of contemporary theatre and dance, performance or multimedia art.
