Genius Loci

Image
The sense of beauty and the spirit that enlivens every place inhabited by man as guides for a fuller and more meaningful existence. Places have a soul. Our job is to find out. Exactly as it happens for the human person. " (James Hillman - The Soul of Places).
"What does it mean that places have a soul?" Have you ever had that feeling, upon entering a place (a city, a museum, a landscape), of being able to feel vividly as a sort of distinctive mark of that place, specific psychic energy characterizing that particular place? The ancient Romans, this energy, called it Genius Loci (the genius of the place). Last shots and stories for The Soul of Places in Italy, continue here.

Pedaso rock lion head Italy, Lungomare dei cantautori del XX secolo, Marches, Pedaso, Province of Fermo. I don't miss fantasy, but it always seems, every time I walk along the promenade of the 20th-century singer-songwriters in Pedaso, to see a lion's head of rock emerging from the sea. Its coastline has natural rocks with the most different names given to them due to their appearance or their connection with ancient stories.

Sanctuary of the Holy House Loreto

Image
Location; Santuario della Santa Casa di Loreto, Piazza Della Madonna, 1, 60025 Loreto, AN, Marches, Italy. Santa Casa Inside is the Holy House of Nazareth, where, according to devotional tradition, the Virgin Mary received the Annunciation. Interior of the Holy House The "house of the Madonna" was formed by three walls leaning against a cave dug into the rock (which is located in the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth). According to popular tradition, on the night between 9 and 10 December 1294 the stones of the house of Nazareth were flown by angels. In fact, some studies and documents found confirmed that transport was by sea on crusader ships. In fact, after the expulsion of the Christians from the Holy Land by Muslims, an exponent of the Angeli family, rulers of Epirus, was interested in saving the Holy House from certain ruin, which was, therefore, transported first to Trsat, in today's Croatia, in 1291 and then in Loreto on 10 December 1294.
