THE HISTORY

OF SAN SERVOLO

The island used to be the home of an old Benedictine monastery that was altered to accommodate various kinds of hospices: it was a hospital for infirm soldiers in 1715; then an “insane asylum”, at first only for nobles, later for poorer patients from the city from 1725 to 1978, the year in which new legislation – Law no. 180 – brought about its closure.

At the present time it is being renovated and restored on behalf of the Province of Venice and now hosts an institute for social research, a trades training school, an international school of neuroscience, and, morevover, the “Made in Italy/Made by Italics” Summer school of Schola italica.
