An extraordinary experience

Casa Sponge is first of all an artist-run space and the residence of an artist. It is one of the Contemporary Art Venues endorsed by the Italian Ministry of Culture. Born in 2007, it is a place where to meditate, study and rest. A house devoted to contemporary art and open to the voyageur.

Casa Sponge is located near the tiny hamlet of Mezzanotte, really close to the town of Pergola, surrounded by oak trees and cultivated fields from which you can look at the Catria-Nerone massif.
It is a country house, dating back to the 19th century where every corner of the house frame pieces of contemporary art by national and international artists.
