The Monastery of Santa Chiara was built in the first half of the 17th century, to establish a female religious community, the Poor Clares. It used to have a large church, that now hosts the Museum of Santa Chiara. At the end of the 18th century, Joseph II of Austria suppressed the order, and converted the monastery into a centre for the processing and production of silk. Later on, it was turned into a military storage facility. Due to the First World War, the building was severely damaged, and in the post-war period it was partially renovated. Afterward, more renovation was carried out in order to host the Finance Police. In 2010, it was restored, and it became the core of the University of Udine in Gorizia.
