Casa delle Traduzioni
The Casa delle Traduzioni in Rome was founded in response to an ever-growing interest in the role and task of the translator. The Casa delle Traduzioni is part of Biblioteche di Roma, the local government institution which runs the city library system. The Casa delle Traduzioni mission is to highlight the work of the translator and to promote the Italian language and literature throughout the world.
The space includes a research library for translators as well as accommodation. The Casa delle Traduzioni envisions itself as a centre for research, a place where translators from any country in the world can meet up and exchange ideas, and a unique, specialized library.
The Residence at the Casa delle Traduzioni is a non-profit, non-hotel accommodation. The Residence is designed to host foreign translators working on translations of Italian writers. Preference is given to literary translators. The Casa delle Traduzioni hosts foreign translators from any country as long as they have the necessary professional credentials. Residence depends on availability, as well as on the quality and duration of the project proposed.
Residents are asked to lead a seminar or give a lecture during their stay.
The Casa delle Traduzioni offers self-catering accommodation. Guest resident translators have unlimited use of the library, the lodging area and the kitchen.
