La Romita School of Art has been in operation for nearly 40 years. This exquisitely rennovated sixteenth century Capuchin monastery sits in an ancient olive grove in southern Umbria, an hour north of Rome.
The three and a half acre complex is surrounded by a stone wall clinging to the hillsides in level coursing.
The main building has eight double occupancy and three single rooms on two floors while an apartment over the chapel has another single and a double for a total occupancy of 22. The rooms feature sweeping vistas of Monte Torre Maggiore and the surrounding foothills of the Appennine mountains above the bustling industrial city of Terni. The chapel, built in 1548 and used today as the painting and study center, features frescoed walls and epochal, religious oil paintings.
Today’s kitchen and dining facilities are in the same area as those used by the Friars. Four decades of expertise guarantee a trouble-free cultural and educational experience.


"There is a hidden jewel in Terni, Italy thriving alongside a pair of gems of international renown. This small industrial city an hour north of Rome is already revered as the home of Saint Valentine and its attendant heart-shaped iconography as well as the home of Italy’s largest waterfall, Cascata delle Marmore, a gorgeous and mind boggling feat of ancient Roman engineering. But…hidden in the hills above Terni’s thriving factories, La Romita School of Art is perhaps the only local institution better known in the United States than in Terni itself. For almost four decades, students from the US, Great Britain, Canada, and Australia have been coming to Terni to study fine arts and the bountiful artistic and cultural history of the local region, Umbria."
