Economics | Cloister of San Faustino


The cloisters, the church and the buildings of Saint Faustinus originally belonged to a male Benedictine complex dating back to the 10th century. The complex was renewed starting from the Renaissance period.

The garden level was occupied by spaces functional to communal life, while the refectory, which today houses the Aula Magna of the Department of Economics and Management, was located in the north east wing.

Towards the end of the 1980s, the cloistered spaces were granted by the State to the University of Brescia, which handled its recovery.
