The site, transformed by the Bourbon kings in woolen mill and abandoned for over a century, is a unique example of Renaissance union and industrial archeology, now a cultural foundation dedicated to contemporary art and craft design. The Foundation carries out its activities in three main areas: The small cloister, with its drier Bourbon, is the heart of the foundation. Here site-specific exhibitions, alternating with performances and live music the Refectory, the place of the Dominican refreshment who lived in the complex, which was used for years as a carpenter, is now the Cloister bar, decorated with handcrafted design objects, which also houses a soup kitchen.
