San Francesco complex and its history

Meditation, study, hospitality: this is the historic identity of the Convent of San Francesco, ably interpreted and re-proposed in an architectural restoration of great aesthetic value but even more admirable for its living witness to history. The place of Franciscan theological and philosophical studies has today become the centre for the university institute IMT Alti Studi. This result has been achieved in eight years of work thanks to the fruitful synergy between the Comune, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca and the Soprintendenza per i Beni Architettonici.
