“a journey through time. a journey into art, a journey into flavors …. in other words ….. a journey towards EDEN”

Lucca is a city on the Serchio river in Italy’s Tuscany region. It’s known for the well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city center and its cobblestone streets. Broad, tree-lined pathways along the tops of these massive 16th- and 17th-century ramparts are popular for strolling and cycling. Casa di Puccini, where the great opera composer was born, is now a house museum.

Real Collegio – Lucca

The Real Collegio was the old monastery of the S. Frediano church, dating back to VI century. The old monastery has been deeply modified and transformed during XVII century with the development of two main cloisters. The building has over 500-years of history on its shoulders.

In 1779 the Republic of Lucca decided to use the building as a “University Institute” and thus, Pope Pius VI disposed the S. Frediano community patrimony to the construction of the new institute.
