The Marie Residency Program

The Marie Residency program is a tribute to the life of Italian artist and glass sculptor Marie Brandolini, who died in 2013. The program – in the spirit of Brandolini’s love and appreciation for literature – brings accomplished writers to both Venice and Jerusalem, two special cities in the deceased artist’s life. The “writers in residence” spend time at Mishkenot Sha’ananim and in Venice under the auspices of Beit Venezia and Casa delle Parole in a program offered by the Rothschild Foundation.
