Nestled in the alpine foothills north of Piedmont, Italy, between Turin and Aosta, is a truly magical place on earth called Damanhur. In a 15-kilometer area surrounding the lush, green valley of Valchiusella lives a very active, multilingual community of 600 people. Damanhur is a self-sufficient Federation with its own Constitution, culture, art, music, currency, schools and uses of science and technology. At the same time, its citizens generously share their depth of knowledge, research and resources with the rest of the world through numerous centers, associations and outreach in many cities around the world, as well as by hosting thousands of visitors each year who participate in tours, seminars, retreats and courses through Damanhur University. The community has attracted interest from scholars, educators and researchers in the fields of art, social sciences, spirituality, medicine and alternative health, economics and environmental sustainability.
