Genius Loci / by valentina chiodi

I think and I am sure as well about that, every place has is own energy and when you are in a particular place you can feel it, if is positive or not...
It's like every place exist for something, exactly like we did.....
I made an interesting research for my degree because I was very curious to understand when you start a new project in an empty land to see before what it will be exactly right for that place and by chance I discovered that there is a big philosophy study around this, called - La Geofilosofia dei luoghi- and it's true that every place is quite ready to accept a kind of architecture, let's say for example Stonehenge was built in that way because of a really spiritual energetic reason, and like that place many others, and it could not have been dedicated to another form.....

We are also able to destroy the soul of the place and this is quite evident when is not the soul that guide you in the planning...but is the human greedness to built and built and built.

It's important sometime, to walk around and to establish again a connection, that you can loose easily,  with the place where you live;  so yesterday, after few years I walked again in to Wat Bo, yes many years, incredible!!! I think I never entered again in since 2010!
But is like when you have something  available every day and you don't care to go and look because you know that is there, but when you actually decide to go, you can breath again the soul of the place.
