The Museum of Silence is located in a room that was part of the ancient church of Santa Maria in Castello in Fara in Sabina. The room is part of the building of the seventeenth-century Monastery of the Poor Clares Hermits and the museum tells the cloistered life in an original and emotionally touching way .
It is accessed from the outside of the monastery and the room is completely dark.
The display cases are illuminated in small groups in a defined pattern. Some significant topics have been identified in the daily life of the nuns: prayer, silence, the kitchen, the pharmacy, discipline, etc ...
These themes are accompanied by a series of projections on the vaults of the hall that emphasize the function of objects.
