  • Current location of "Open Restoration" project by the Higher Institute for Conservation and Restoration. You can visit the church and the restoration workshops thanks to the guidance of the highly prepared and extremely kind officials. A beautiful experience to make known an important work for our cultural heritage.

  • A very interesting path to discover the mysterious restoration methodologies (often poorly understood), explained by experienced teen, nice and very helpful. The path is located in the former Church of Santa Marta, Baroque building (beautiful) by the unusual history of which the expert will speak. Open only under reservation, open from Tuesday to Saturday and every first Sunday of the month.
