The Cittadella wants to be a welcoming space and consists of three poles:
- The Cittadella Ospitalità, a beautiful house, even in the sobriety, hospitable, crossroads of conviviality, where they organize appointments with experts and witnesses on the most burning issues of the social and ecclesial world, encouraging meetings and dialogues between different cultures and religions. In it are welcomed groups, religious and parish communities, school camps and those who want a few days of rest in an atmosphere of friendship and relaxation.
- the Observatory, a place of documentation and study, where in history and current events, in literature, art and music, can seek the presence of Christ who works in every human expression.
- The Chapel where, in recollection or in the liturgy, one can discover the relationship with the Eternal and feel in fraternal communion.
