The Grounds

La Romita School of Art is held at the La Romita Facility, a 16th Century Capuchin Monastery located in the foothills above Terni, in the region of Umbria. The property sits on 3 and a half acres, surrounded by olive groves and stone walls in level coursing. The main structure consists of the Accomodation wing, the Chapel-Studio, and the “Torre”, a set of accomodations located above the former Sacresty. The dining area is set aside from the main building. In addition to the dining area and Studio, a gazebo behind the dining area provides a wonderful outdoor meeting area, where students can socialize, paint, and watch video presentations of the art and history of the region.

Behind the studio, the cloister garden offers a quiet place to contemplate the beautiful flowers and herbs, the fountain and well, and a grand view of the valley below.


Help Support La Romita

For over 55 years La Romita has been pursuing its mission "to inspire individual creativity and artistic expression through workshops in Italy, cultural exchange, and appreciation of the arts". We feel deeply that what we are doing at La Romita - the ways that it has enriched lives and promoted appreciaition of culture and art - is worth preserving through the toughest times. You can help us to continue to pursue our mission by making a donation this season. A donation to our La Romita Foundation will go to maintaining our staff and property until it's safe to travel once again.

By helping support us through a gift (every little bit counts!) you will be an integral part of our future and the future of all who come through our doors.
