The structure is situated in one of the most beautiful building of the late 1800’s Taormina’s architecture . It belonged to the “Opera Pia”’s nuns and during the second World War was used from the Anglo-Americans Army as military post. After that, it becames the property of the local municipality and was used as an elementary school.
The building has been recently and completely renovated either in its external wallfaces and in its inside but always respecting the old style and the traditional local architecture.
