The building now host the civic Museum “delle Cappuccine” and it includes, on the ground floor, the municipal library, the collection of prints and engravings “Gabinetto delle Stampe”, the historical archives and the natural history museum, while the first floor of the building hosts the museum with artworks spanning from the XV century to the present.

The Capuchin nuns came to Bagnacavallo in 1753, but it was only in 1762 that they bought the first part of the building which had to become their convent. After Napoleon rule, at the time when all religious orders in Bagnacavallo had to leave their buildings, in 1822 the nuns came back to their convent. In the XX century, during the ’70s, the convent was sold to the local municipality and all the remaining nuns were moved to other convents.
