The Hospice or the so called “Residential centre for palliative treatments” is a structure meant to assist people affected by terminal diseases. Its rule in Italy is not as well known and consolidated as in other European nations; even its own architectural peculiarities are still subjects of work in progress researches and tests, as far as they concern spaces and sites. Despite its limited dimensions and its scarce advanced technologies, the hospice has its own specific features, that during the programming and planning stage require the same approaches and operative modalities usually required for the planning of the generally defined “complex buildings”.
