Camaldoli is especially noteworthy among monastic settlements: An entire monastic culture started with the monastery’s foundation that is still alive today. At Camaldoli, the number 11 plays a paramount role: The 11th century and 1,111 m above sea level marked the givens in space and time for St. Romuald when he founded this semi-eremitic branch of the Benedictines northeast of Arezzo. Similar to the Carthusians, Camaldoli’s hermit monks inhabit each a small house in a separate garden. As a Benedictine heritage, the monastery also features community life so that a Camaldolese monk can choose which way of life he prefers. The production of cosmetic products is one of the monastery’s most important areas of work.
