Former Capuchin's convent

The former convent was founded by the will of Prince Pietro Borgia in 1590 and it hosted the friars of the Capuchin order until the middle of the 19th-century. Today only a small part of the convent still has a roof, but it preserves the cloister, with a suggestive well in the middle, and the annexed church.  The largest part of the facility stands in a state of ruin where nature is claiming the soil again. This condition creates today a charming atmosphere where it is almost impossible to distinguish the work of man from the work of nature. 

 

This place is one of the many locations in the village that could be the subject of architectural and artistic experimentation. How can we reuse those places today and at the same time maintain the same magical atmosphere?
