A real hidden gem in the Oltrarno district. A monastery built in the 19th Century, then converted into a military hospital during the First World War is now a place where crafts, art and culture coexist. Florentine artisans' ateliers are located all around the ancient cloister where all kinds of cultural events ranging from musical to theatrical theme are held. A lively place with an interesting calendar of meetings and events all year round to be enjoyed outside or in the interior spaces where there is also a café with cafeteria service and bar for aperitifs to be enjoyed immersed in a truly unique historical environment.
In the Caffè Letterario, you can browse books and newspapers in the newsstand, bookshop and library space dedicated to the world of creativity and the history of the neighborhood and of Florence, taste the specialties of the "Artist's Menu" , use the workstations with internet service free wi-fi and enjoy the green space in the cloister returned to public use thanks to this project. A unique idea of its kind, created for the first time here with the aim of making the Café a point of reference for the whole neighborhood, an inclusive, social and meeting place constantly animated by an ongoing cultural offer. dedicated to the dear and identifying themes of the Oltrarno district: art and craftsmanship.
