EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the breathtaking view of the Cistercian Abbey of S. Galgano, a remarkable piece of Gothic architecture nestled in the picturesque countryside of Siena, Italy. The image, taken by renowned photographer Folco Quilici in 1971, beautifully showcases the timeless beauty and spiritual significance of this medieval masterpiece. Dating back to the years between 1224 and 1288, this abbey stands as a testament to Europe's rich religious history during the first and second millenniums A. D. Its imposing structure evokes a sense of awe and reverence, with its intricate details and towering spires reaching towards the heavens. The surrounding landscape adds another layer of charm to this already enchanting scene. Wooded areas frame the abbey on one side while farmland stretches out into the distance on another. Hillsides gently roll across the horizon, creating a harmonious blend between man-made marvels and nature's splendor. From an aerial perspective or bird's eye view, one can truly appreciate how seamlessly this architectural gem integrates into its surroundings. Its presence dominates both urban spaces nearby as well as small villages that dot the countryside. As we gaze upon this mesmerizing print captured by Quilici from Alinari archives, we are transported back in time to an era where faith played such a significant role in shaping European culture. This photograph serves as a reminder not only of our shared heritage but also invites us to reflect on our own spirituality amidst these ancient walls.
