The former Carmine church, in the historic centre of Medicina, closed in 2016 due to needing consolidation and restoration work. Until then it had been an important venue for cultural and artistic activities promoted by numerous organisations from the local and neighbouring areas, which succeeded in engaging different audiences.
In 2018, Carisbo’s “Rigenerazione Urbana” tender made it possible to start work on making the former church sacristy accessible again. While the work was taking place, the Municipality of Medicina also launched a process designed to regenerate the premises, writing a Manifesto, setting up a Management Committee and identifying the fields of activities to be catered to in a new venue in the Carmine sacristy.
The next step involves launching a participatory process that will involve the community in establishing how the Carmine church will be reused.
