Bonn/Rome, 9 February 2024
For the sixth time, the jury for the Casa di Goethe scholarship of the Karin und Uwe Hollweg Stiftung (Karin and Uwe Hollweg Foundation) has selected scholarship holders for a working residency in Rome. Since 2013, the scholarship has enabled cultural professionals, such as authors, academics or translators, whose work is dedicated to German-Italian cultural exchange, to live and work for two months in the Museum Casa di Goethe in the historic centre of Rome. The museum is organised by the Arbeitskreis selbständiger Kultur-Institute e. V. (AsKI).
The German-Italian jury (Francesca Melandri, Rome; Prof. Dr Dieter Richter, Bremen; PD. Dr Susanna Brogi, Nuremberg) selected eight scholarship holders who will be guests at the Casa di Goethe from summer 2024:
We would like to thank the Karin und Uwe Hollweg Stiftung for its long-standing support of the scholarship program

The scholarship funded by the Karin and Uwe Hollweg Foundation Bremen enables writers, scientists and publicists who devote their work to German-Italian cultural exchange to live and work for two to four months in the new rooms of the Casa di Goethe. Since the extension of the Casa di Goethe in the year 2012, an apartment has been available to scholarship holders there.
The scholarship holders’ work is dedicated to the cultural exchange between Italy and Germany – innovative and of a high standard whereby a reference to Goethe is desirable though not a precondition. Funding is only provided for projects whose realisation requires time spent in Rome.
