  • The convent complex, built in just 3 years in the first half of the '200, includes the church of St. Dominic and the cloisters, a larger one (which from via Dante) and one, somewhat hidden, called small cloister or the dead, as well as a courtyard and a small park. During the 15th century the church was expanded (reworked again, remaining unfinished, in the 1700s and which houses a canvas of Palma the Younger), and the convent that, in the 1500s, hosted the Inquisition Tribunal, with a prison section. After various events (and destinations of various use) at the end of the 20th minute the cloister complex was restored, in order to make it fully usable, also changing its type of use. Today the premises are an animated cultural hub in the service of the city: home to the Achille Peri Music Institute, the Archives, and the Historical Institute of Resistance. It is also home to temporary exhibitions. Since 2005, the secret and silent Piccolo Cloister has hosted Robert Morris's opera "Less Than", designed specifically for this context. During the week the cloisters are very popular with young music students, on Saturdays, a day when the cloisters are not frequented, it is perhaps the best time to grasp the simple and austere appearance, but at the same time elegant, almost metaphysical. Times: Large cloister Monday to Saturday: 7am -8pm; Small cloister open for exhibitions or events; Church: closed, open only at special events.

  • The cloisters are located exactly in front of the barracks and were used as stables of stallions, perfectly maintained. Built around 1233 they have two monumental courtyards, the small one near the church while the large one overlooks Via Dante Alighieri. The cloisters over time had different roles, originally convent, then military hospital, barracks in the Napoleon period and deposit for horses. inside an interesting photographic exhibition with musical background (violin).
