The Spirit of the Territory: the Four Spells of the Lake Bolsena

by Cristina Neri

The seminar introduces the documentary “I Quattro Incantesimi del Lago di Bolsena – The four spells of the lake” (subject Giovanni Feo, direction Marco Scataglini), starting from the Geobiology and Sacred Geography, the network of magical and sacred connections between heaven and earth, alignments and orientations, approaches the connection between man and territory, specifically the one about the Bolsena Lake, Sacred place from the earliest times. The four spells of the lake appear to be in four different eras, from the Rinaldonian until the ‘700, four expressions of talismanic magic to protect the place, aimed at harmonising and balancing, but above all to protect the middle world by celestial and subterranean forces.
In the light of an energy study, the various sacred places and their talismanic protection magic, the alignments between them, the probable sacralization of the territory, the powers of the directions and the flow of energy, the unusual reality, are examined with archeoastronomy and  ley lines references. All well-known themes  since millennia, whose knowledge reveals obvious and ignored evidence since the Neolithic, passing from the Etruscans and the Templars, awareness that recently seems to re-emerge.

Useful facts to know before choosing where to build, reconstruct and live, knowing the correlation between geobiology, electrical, electromagnetic and human health, with practical applications in architecture.
