Italian Cuisine is located within the Convictus complex, a residence for off-site students built in a charming former convent of Benedictine nuns.
The origins of this building have been lost over the centuries: it was the site of the city mint; a shelter for girls in need (1600); and thanks to Princess
Maria Luisa of Bourbon, in 1826 it became the home of the nunnery of the Sisters of San Benedetto and Santa Scolastica, who lived in
the cloister for about 200 years until 2015.
In 2018 it reopened, converted to a student residence while retaining as far as possible the same spirit that animated the site’s collective life.
The students living in the complex are mostly aspiring artists from the world of music, cinema and acting who, by getting to know each other, have the chance to complement one another.
In addition to comfortable rooms in the former convent cells, the residence offers spacious study rooms, a cinema room, practice spaces for musicians, and a cloister-garden with ancient trees where you can exercise and relax.
