Educatorio di Fuligno
Educatorio di Fuligno, a Renaissance convent located along via Faenza, an ancient pilgrims' way in Florence, and a few minutes walk from Florence main train station, is the sprint venue from April 6th to April 7th.
Founded at the beginning of the fourteenth century and called Fuligno after the name of Franciscan nuns coming from Umbria, who had lived there since 1419, over the centuries it has had many different uses. It was closed in 1800 and used as a female college. The convent’s refectory, a museum since the nineteenth century, has been decorated with a fifteenth century fresco showing the Last Supper, attributed to Pietro Perugino.
