"But we want it to be a gift economy, so we want the land to be given to us. We don’t want to ask for money or look for donations.
It might seem like a bit of a whim, but the idea is that when something is given, there’s a subsequent gratitude. It creates a much different energy than when something is bought." (...)

"I think everyone knows that giving is amazing, and that through exchanging and sharing we can achieve something.

430 years (and a few days) ago, more precisely on March 3 1585, the Teatro Olimpico built by Palladio was inaugurated in Vicenza, Italy. This theater is not only a masterpiece, but also a unicum in the world. You can find out why in the article I wrote in 2012 (updated with new photos). http://slowitaly.yourguidetoitaly.com/2012/07/teatro-olimpico-palladian-architecture-oldest-enclosed-theater-in-the-world/
