Enrico Loccioni was born into a family of sharecroppers, and the Abbey itself was the house of his maternal grandparents. This is a further reason why Enrico accepted the invitation from the Municipality of Apiro to take part in a public-private project consisting of regenerating the valley, as well as enhancing the Abbey. A project which also includes the restoration of the nearby school and of two big old barns, destined to be used as innovation, research, and community centers.
The Hospitality Lab. reinterprets the simplicity and the authenticity of the monastic and sharecropping culture, offering to its guests an Italian traditional cuisine made of fresh and quality ingredients coming from the territory, other than accommodation solutions for groups of people.
