To go beyond borders and be together
· Chase fear through the knowledge of nature and the search of culture.
· Gather the riches of different creeds and traditions, getting to know one another and becoming friends.
· Understand that we must all live as a big family in our small planet.
These are the aims of the Sergio The Patriarch Foundation.
The Foundation is located on two farms, an island surrounded by woods, on a hill overlooking San Gimignano, in front of the Tuscan Chianti, right in the heart of Italy. Nature here offers all its perfection and beauty. The air is transparent and pure. You can feel the breath of the earth and the magnetism of the rocks. It is a special place where nature speaks a new language. A new energy springs in the mind, a new light opens the hearts. It goes beyond personal horizons towards a more enlightened way of thinking.
Sergio the Patriarch, the “Magister”, was a simple teacher but a great healer for children, youngsters, adults, elderly folk. He used to ask pupils, friends and visitors to walk with him in these magic surroundings. His conversation was simple and friendly but always focused on the need of the person he was talking to. His words naturally flowed with peace and understanding.
Everybody was deeply touched, discovering new truths in themselves. Everybody left full with new courage and deeper understanding of the aims of his life.
Sergio became “The Patriarch” and left a precious heritage of love and comprehension at Montenidoli. His message must proceed further; for this reason the two farms on the top of the hill were given to the Foundation.
We are seeking for friends, supporters and donators to fulfill the aims of our programme.
