Santa Marta Cloister

Santa Marta Cloister

Description

Sometimes the most hidden treasures are also the most beautiful ones. Take the Santa Marta Cloister, for instance.

Even though it is not visible from the outside, this cloister hosts two invaluable sculptures: a statue – “The Sitting Cardinal” – made by the Bergamo sculptor Giacomo Manzù, and a monolith created by the renowned artist Anish Kapoor.

It is a very evocative place, indeed, thanks to its beautiful columns and capitols creating a peaceful urban oasis. Despite its six hundred years, its charm didn’t change at all: walking along its arcades you will feel like you’re carried to another time.

This amazing hidden place used to be part of an old monastery (now disappeared) and can be reached by the Crispi Gallery, giving onto Piazza Vittorio Veneto.
