A green space

The Serafico Institute occupy about 10,000 square meters in a total area of 40,000, surrounded by greenery at the foot of Mount Subasio a few meters from the Papal Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi.

Each place is organized according to the needs of our children, to break down all architectural barriers and facilitate orientation, so that they can move independently and freely. The boys live in apartments equipped with all comforts, which host six / seven people and follow the characteristics of our houses, with single and double rooms, private bathrooms, kitchen and living room. In the residential part there are 4 residential units, each of which consists of 2 apartments.

The residences

Adjacent to the main structure of the Institute, there are two residences. Both with a living area on the ground floor with a garden, a sleeping area on the upper floor and other spaces dedicated to specific activities, have been created to allow maximum usability.

The park

In the outdoor park, in addition to the games, there is a path equipped to facilitate orientation thanks to the variations of the sensorial inputs. The main route develops on three closed hairpin bends with transverse links.
