Certosa di Farneta

Historical Character Lucca, Italy

The monastery of the monks Certosa di Farneta

The Certosa di Farneta (or Certosa di Santo Spirito di Farneta or Certosa di Maggiano) is a cloistered Carthusian monastery just north of Lucca. The charterhouse was founded in the early 14th century. In the 17th century, the painters Giovanni Fondagna and Stefano Cassiani worked on the interior of the church, including the cupola and two altar-pieces. The monastery was suppressed by Napoleonic forces in 1809, only to be re-occupied later in the 19th century.
