Damanhur is a Federation of Spiritual Communities located in Italy, north of Piedmont, between Turin and Aosta, in a radius of 15 kilometers that includes in the center an area named Valchiusella, a valley that is still green and clean. 600 citizens of Damanhur living there have given rise to a multilingual society, open to exchanges with the world and to different cultures and peoples.
Damanhur was founded in 1975 under the inspiration of Falco (Hawk), Oberto Airaudi (1950-2013). His enlightened and pragmatic vision created a fertile reality based on solidarity, sharing, love, and respect for the environment, so as to obtain recognition in 2005 as a model of sustainable society by the Global Human Settlements Forum of ONU.

The Temple Halls are an underground work of art, a subterranean cathedral created entirely by hand and dedicated to the divine nature of humanity. It is a great three dimensional book which recounts the history of Humankind through all the art forms, a path of re-awakening to the Divine inside and outside of ourselves.
