This convent, dedicated to the medical saints, was founded by a Benedictine nun in 1482. It later had numerous roles, including a cholera hospital and textile factory.
Today the large cloister holds five of the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa art studios and the extensive archives of the Fondazione Luigi Nono, left by the Venetian-born avant garde composer (1924-1990).
