Italian text

This essay focuses on the symbols enshrined in the basilica of San Miniato al Monte (Florence), showing us the true meaning of “sacred architecture”: the arcane power which emanates from a place and the effects it can induce on mind and spirit, steering us – consciously or not – towards a dimension of absolute peace and unity. Inside of the sacred building, every passion is appeased and the soul feeds off the breath that created her. The basilica of San Miniato al Monte is the prototype of a sacred architecture.
