Monastery of St. Maria delle Vetere – A refuge for unfortunate widows

0
At 46, Corso di Porta Ticinese there was the entrance of the Monastery of St. Maria delle Vetere ("of the widows"). The old building was located in the area between Via Arena and Corso di Porta Ticinese and it offered protection to all those unfortunate widows who were sent away from their families. The near Via Vetere reminds this monastery and the hospital annexed, both demolished in 1799 except the cloister.
