Palazzo Valdina complex headquarters of the offices of the Chamber of Deputies (Rome) – Restoration and rehabilitation works

Brief historical notes. The complex of vicolo Valdina, few steps far away from Palazzo Montecitorio, has an ancient history: it rises in the early Middle Ages in the heart of Campo Marzio as a small convent of nuns gathered around the oratory of S. Gregorio Nazianzeno; It has undergone significant transformations over the centuries, from the oldest nucleus dominated by the Romanesque bell tower, trough the Renaissance, eighteenth and nineteenth century overlaps, up to the twentieth century restorations. Today the complex consists of the former convent of the Benedictine nuns of S. Maria in Campo Marzio and the adjoining church dedicated to S. Gregorio Nazianzeno, a Romanesque bell tower, a fragment of a 13th-century chapter room (at the buvette), from a sixteenth-century cloister with a fountain in the center and the extensions made in the past centuries around the cells of the convent. The Vicolo Valdina complex houses the offices of the Chamber of Deputies.
