The cultural association Institutum Provisorium, founded by Franco Santoro, is an experiential holistic research and interspiritual centre, dedicated to the expansion of human awareness and the retrieval of multidimensional consciousness. The basic characteristic of our institute and its teachings is given by its explicit provisional nature. The opinions, techniques, ideas that we convey have a purely strategic function, the purpose of which is to facilitate a direct experience of the mysteries of our nature and the reality in which we live or believe we live.
We intend to operate as a multicultural and interspiritual inspirational force to provide support to individuals, groups and communities in the discernment, recognition and expression of their true talents for the benefit of humanity and the planet. We are dedicated to serving others and the environment in alignment with the web of life, understanding every polarity and being, visible and invisible. Our rhythms and services are rooted in the Eurasian, Middle Eastern and Western traditions, and integrate religious orthodoxy with alternative spirituality.
Our activities include a wide variety of tools and promote a deep connection with the Divine, adherence to one’s purpose in life and the development of creative potentials, adapting to the needs of each individual and group.
Our Institute is based in a very quiet and beautiful scenery, surrounded by natural woodlands and brooks, at il Casale in Lunigiana, a warm international community and small farm in Northern Tuscany (Italy). We offer retreats, short, medium and long-term workshops and training courses, consultations, and seminars in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Greek, German and Russian.
Most of our activities and programmes currently take place online or at our campus at Casale in Lunigiana (Merizzo, Massa) and Centro Eleusi (Bologna). From 1999 to 2018 most of Franco Santoro activities took place at the Findhorn Foundation in the north of Scotland.
The registered office of our institute is in Piazza la Veneta 20A, 40138 Bologna, Italy. The operational headquarters and our campus is at il Casale in Lunigiana, via del Piano 17, Merizzo, 54028 Villafranca in Lunigiana MS.
