At the base of the complex Via Peri 11 stands a wing of the convent of Santa Caterina, which, of ancient foundation, reached its maximum building development during the 18th century. The residence was renovated in 2013 in a conservative manner and with particular care: the original load-bearing walls were retained, the old entrance with access to the staircase was reactivated, the historical heights of the rooms were preserved and the arches on the ground floor were restored, the former windows were reopened and the original slope of the roof pitches, with its characteristic roof tiles, was also maintained. Its functional development proposes on the ground floor office space, and on the three upper floors two flats per floor, with a large surface area and high standing finish, in line with the Residence's strategic location.
The flat, with a living area of 150 sqm, is composed as follows:
