  • To see this gem of our lower town you have to search for it within the complex which is now the seat of Bergamo of UBI Banca and that has long been the seat of the powerful Banca Popolare di Bergamo. Current passes in front of the entrance of the Bank, whether it concerns, inside it has ample space in the art nouveau style, with large Windows decorated with the taste of the time, giving birth to large indoor spaces open to customers, although adapted to the Bank's needs, and continuing to the left of the entrance, always staying indoors, gradually you will reveal the entrance almost reserved at this splendid cloister. If you're lucky will be open for a few shows, or special occasion, then revenue without fear and enjoy the set of feelings that will be born in you experiencing this cloister, born as a place of prayer and meditation, and now available for your senses for you to enjoy in details what is exposed; in any case, if you enter will be available to your look the whole of the cloister and the permanent works of art, usually described in any guide of Bergamo, who from the encounter with this place are fully valued.

  • Just today, Sunday, October 8, adhering to the initiative ABI ' call for Building "event now in its sixteenth edition, we could attend a guided tour to discover this hidden gem ... This is what remains of the ancient Dominican monastery for women, dating from the second half of the fifteenth century, overlooking the lawn of Sant'Alessandro, in the heart of lower Bergamo. The cloister, while not surviving in its entirety, is an important starting point for architectural and Urban Affairs of Bergamo. retrace Thanks to UBI BANCA the cloister became a treasure chest of art, tucked right in the heart of the city, rich in cultural religious art, such as the creations of modern and contemporary sculpture: "the big Cardinal sitting" Giacomo Manzu ' (theme developed by the sculptor in over 300 performances); "Nun who communicate" of Elijah Aaa (former Professor of sculpture at the Carrara), which evokes a time of daily life of the nuns in the convent's ancient past. And finally the monumental black granite monolith, reflecting large basin (title: "Untitled") by artist Anglo-Indian Anish Kapoor. Open to the public every first Sunday of the month, we recommend the visit!!!
