Interview with Martino di Napoli Rampolla: Numeroventi
Are you ready for an extraordinary getaway in Florence? Or are you happened to be an artist looking for a heartening artist residency program? We might have an option for both. Numeroventi aims to provide an inspiring shelter to artists and creative professionals looking for a mental and physical space to develop their projects. The contrast between the history of the building and its vibrant new occupancy is reflected in Florence itself; a city that is a living testament to the astonishing achievements of the Renaissance while also striving to be young, creative, and forward-looking. We've sat down with Martino, the visionary founder behind Numeroventi to discuss his vision and initial idea of Numeroventi. " I wanted to create a place that would aim to act as a retreat, as a place where creatives can rediscover the core of their profession. That would invite them to break out from routines and be inspired; by other people, by the space—actually, in many different ways. Of course, every individual comes here with different needs and expectations, but they all seek the possibility to recharge creatively." In search of a true recharge whether you're an artist and a traveller, Numeroventi shall be your number one destination.
