Convent of Bigorio - chapel
Switzerland

In posizione panoramica. Fondato nel 1535, prima sede svizzera dei frati cappuccini, fu ampliato nel 1659-88 e alzato di un piano nel 1760-67 da Giuseppe Caresana.

Edificio formato da quattro corpi disposti intorno a un piccolo chiostro senza porticato.

Restauro 1966-67, durante il quale l'antica legnaia fu trasformata in una cappella su progetto di Tita Carloni e Mario Botta. A quest'ultimo si deve anche la trasformazione di alcuni locali al primo piano nell'ala S-E del chiostro in sala di riunioni 1973-74.

Ulteriori lavori di ricostruzione e di miglioria dopo il rovinoso incendio del 1987. 

Nel 1996 è stato allestito da Raffaele Cavadini un museo liturgico che accoglie oggetti legati alla sfera religiosa e alle occupazioni quotidiane dei cappuccini.

Accanto al portale d'entrata: affresco raffigurante S. Francesco e un angelo attr. ai fratelli Giuseppe Antonio Maria e Giovanni Antonio Torricelli, XVIII sec. 

Nel museo si conserva una notevole collezione di quadri dei sec. XVI-XIX e opere di fra' Roberto.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
