The estate, named “Villino San Paolo”, or “ex Villa Topaia”is immersed in the woods on the slopes of the northern hill of the
Cure neighbourhood. The estate, built in the 17th century, was transformed after the purchase by the Barnabite Friars in 1931 and the following expansions and the reconstruction of the ruines.
The building consists of three above ground floors and small underground portion. The property is enclosed in an area limited by via della Piazzuola, via Dino Compagni e la Chiesa della Beata Vergine Maria Madre della Divina Provvidenza.
The estate has been designated mainly for education and services. The structure, after the recent dismission as university
and student accomodation, is suitable, due to its typology and location, for a hotel designation.
