Italy/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.2 Special artists funds

It is worth noting that GAI, the association of young Italian artists mentioned in the previous chapter, is a partner, along with MIBACT, of the project DEMO-Moving up, actively promoting the creation of an annual fund in support of the international mobility of Italian artists. The fund – unique for Italy – amounted to 389 000 EUR for 2013-2014, of which 2/3 was provided by MiBACT (DG Contemporary Arts, Architecture and Urban Suburbs, and DG Performing Arts). It was started in 1999, and since its creation it has provided support to 697 projects and to 1 200 visual and performing artists aged between 18 and 35 years. Furthermore, scholarships have been awarded for artists in residence in Berlin, Paris, Istanbul and New York.
