The blinding white of the complex contrasted the deep brown of wet earth all around upon our arrival. It seemed almost like a mirage, but it was all true. Before us an expanse of whiteness and homes almost glued to each other. We were all aware that we had arrived in a very sacred place, a jewel in the heart of the Basilicata countryside. It was not easy to access but for this very reason it was a gift from God, I thought, given to all those who have had the privilege to reach or spend a few days immersed in the light and intensity of this magical place.
