SOTTO LA TENDA DI ABRAMO
12 may – 4 june

Deir Mar Musa El–Habashi is a monastery dedicated to Saint Moses the Abyssinian in the mountains of Syria, in a desert close to Nebek, at an altitude of 1320 metres, 80 km north of Damascus. Around the middle of the seventh century, Christian hermits living in the local caves founded the first monastery there. The current building dates to 1058. After its abandonment in the 1950s, it was restored thanks to the tenacious efforts of Padre Paolo Dall'Oglio, an Italian Jesuit, who founded a monastic community here. The aim of the monastery is the rediscovery of spiritual life, prayer and contemplation, with great attention being paid to the dialogue between religions. The community's vocation is also an encounter with Islamic mysticism and culture. Deir Mar Musa has become the destination of pilgrims of various origins, attracted by the beauty of the site and the desire to spend a period of time in reflection and rediscovery of the “other”. Ivo Saglietti's photographs describe daily life in the monastery. Curated by: Mario Peliti Production: Peliti Associati with the collaboration of Gruppo Gamma
