Feudo Art Residency was born from an idea by Giuseppe Russo, as an artist residency project dedicated to music and the volcano.

A project that Giuseppe firmly grounds in his own humanistic education, his piano studies, and a passion for music that runs throughout his life, inevitably fully engaging even in his work to bring the family winery into the future, interpreting the great wine-making history of Mount Etna in a contemporary way.

The idea is to transform the spaces of Feudo, which is my family’s home and that of wine enthusiasts who come to visit us, into an open home for artists as well: a place where inspiration can arise and be shared, drawing energy from the vitality of the volcano.

2023 Edition

For the second edition of Feudo Art Residency, on September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 2023, we will share with the audience the three concerts that result from the collaborative work of the talented artists in residence for this edition.

We will welcome you starting from 7 PM to enjoy an aperitif among the vineyards together and then gather to listen under the stars.

This year, we have also created the opportunity to subscribe to either 2 or all 3 concerts: in this case, we will be delighted to welcome you in the morning for a cellar tour and a tasting of our wines!
