SANTENEA, a 13th century borgo, is the residence, meeting and communication centre of AENEAS, the internatinal culture circle, promoting < politics of friendship > (Derrida) .

SANTENEA with its generous structure of charming hidden places to relax, to talk, to read and to write in repose is an archaic ensemble of five contadini-houses which have been tastefully restored with intelligent care conserving its most important features, but with all modern facilities. Uninjured nature starts right behind the borgo: pleasant walking paths lead through olive groves, wildflowers and forests
