PublicationsA special edition of the magazine ATLAS, dedicated to the study-journey to the Holy Land that took place in the summer of 2006, with the participation of directors of protected areas, publicists, experts and lovers of Christian archaeology.
The study-journey “Dalla Raffigurazione alla Realtà” - From Representation To Reality - was born from the need to visit the Holy Land to discover the memories, the places and the religious practices that led to the birth and growth of the Christian Sacred Mounts, Calvaries and Devotional Complexes. The journey was ideated and planned by the Documentation Centre in collaboration with Paolo Pellizzari.
The itinerary began in the North, in Galilee, where visits to churches and basilicas alternated with those to sites of major archaeological and scenic worth, like the remains of the Roman  city of Caesarea on the Mediterranean, the village of Sefforis near Nazareth where S. Gioacchino and S. Anna lived,  Mount Tabor and the Mount of the Beatitudes, from which one looks out over the Lake of Tiberias. At each place or monument, the visit approach followed a precise methodology divided into three stages: the first phase was a reference to the written word, that is, the reading of the Gospel.  The group then passed to the detailed account of the pilgrimage made in 1350 by  Friar Nicolò da Poggibonsi, reported in the book Libro d’Oltremare. The final stage was a discussion on the original reality of the place and its reproduction in the Sacred Mounts.

The care and the management of the major holy places, in the Christian context, is entrusted to the different religions: the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, for example, is shared between the Greek-Orthodox, the Armenians, Syrians, Coptics and Latins (Roman Catholics).
S. Francis of Assisi,  to whom the Sacred Mount of Orta is dedicated, stayed for over a year in the Middle East, and his initiatives, marked by the dialogue spirit, indicated his friars a the best interpreters of the relationships between the Catholic hierarchy and the other religious confessions: in 1342, the “Custodia di Terra Santa” (Custody of the Holy Land) was  founded and it is still active.
