Inside the 16th century Valserena Abbey, or Paradigna Charterhouse, a unique museum that includes collections of art, photography, architecture, fashion and advertisement: it’s the CSAC- Center and archive for the study of communication. Born as a research center of the Parma University in 1968, today the CSAC is a cultural place open and available for visits where guided tours, thematic workshops, exhibitions and events are organized. Walking through the ancient rooms of the Abbey you can admire the mixture between modern and antique, the power or art and a sacred awesomeness.

The CSAC also offers a restaurant and an hospitality service in the inner Locanda.
