Today, Ex Convento is a cultural organization based in southern Italy that organizes

and supports events, productions, festivals, and educational projects.

Placed on top of a hill and surrounded by a scented Mediterranean nature,

Ex Convento meets all our needs: an indoor space equipped for our practices, a large citrus grove, a big kitchen, an area to come together, and a beautiful shaded outdoor gym.
