Unlike what is commonly thought, an Oasis is a totally artificial environment. Such historical and legendary landscape is, in fact, entirely man-made, the result of a series of social, environmental, agricultural, architectural elements, all equally necessary and absolutely inseparable. It is in fact only thanks to the Saharan and Arabian communities, who have settled since prehistoric times in arid areas and handed down rules for the self-reproduction of natural systems, sharing scarce resources and cultivating the palm grove, that the Oasis was born. Centuries-old crossroads of merchants, exchanges and encounters between different cultures and religions, the Oasis has inhabited from time immemorial the collective imagination of different peoples, a symbolic place of the unexpected and saving beauty, celebrated by ancient and universally known works of literature. A shelter and, at the same time, a gateway to the desert, to the vast biblical landscape of stone and sand, the Oasis is the stronghold of human civilization in a land of silence, where hermits, saints and pilgrims, take to wander, seeking the Infinite and the Absolute.
