The Federation of Damanhur, often called simply Damanhur, is a commune, ecovillage, and spiritual community situated in the Piedmont region of northern Italy about 50 kilometres (31 mi) north of the city of Turin. Damanhur is named after the Egyptian city of Damanhur which was the site of a temple dedicated to Horus.

Jeff Merrifield, Damanhur: The Community They Tried to Brand a Cult (London: HarperCollins, 1998). In addition to Damanhurians and Satanists, the area around Turin is also home to a number of Theosophy groups and Gurdjieff acolytes. The author of two books of essays together with Fredrik Ekman, he has exhibitions and screenings forthcoming at the Power Plant, Toronto; The Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem; and Zendai Moma, Shanghai.

The Temple of Mankind at Damanhur is the home of a fascinating spiritual and artistic community. Hidden inside a mountain in the Italian Alps, it is renowned for its exceptional artistry and breathtaking mix of marble, mosaic, and stained glass. It is one of the most extraordinary buildings on Earth, and equally extraordinary is the story of how it was built, and became the center for a utopian community of like-minded people.

Good to see that people are trying out new ideas, and are able to work in harmony...mostly.
With all our individual personalities that's quite an accomplishment. The proof will be in those young people born there, or mostly raised there, and who they become, and how loving and brilliant they are in their contribution to our swiftly changing world. Bless em all!
The constructs in the mountain are beyond STUNNING, Knock-out GORGEOUS, moving, inspiring, AMAZING, and I heartily congratulate them on that. It's almost unbelievable that they could have done what they did, but they did! You must buy the coffee table book with the glorious photos to accompany this story of the people of Damanhur.

Damanhur (which this book tells us means "City of Light"; it was named after an ancient Egyptian city dedicated to the god Horus) is a modern spiritual community in Italy, living in an underground temple (the "Temples of Humankind") dug out of rock by hand. It was founded in 1977 by a young spiritual teacher named Oberto Airaudi. Jeff Merrifield's book explains that "this is a place of spiritual, philosophical research, not ... a new religion." Merrifield, who is an author and playwright, wrote this book in 1998 (he has revised it in 2006, under the title, Damanhur: The Story of the Extraordinary Italian Artistic And Spiritual Community).

Damanhur is one of the more successful "New Age" communities; Merrifield portrays them as "loosely associated, but spiritually linked," and as a "society of initiates, totally devoted to the evolution and uplifting of the whole of humanity." As described by Merrifield, they have nearly a thousand permanent residents, as well as their own Constitution, their own currency, and their own daily newspaper.

Local Italian authorities attempted to shut down their operation in 1992 (as the subtitle of Merrifield's book indicates, they were considered a "cult," who had built an illegal series of tunnels without advance approval), but that action has ceased.

Merrifield's books are a fascinating account of this community, which runs several dozen businesses, and is close to self-sufficiency. This book will be of great interest to anyone interested in intentional ("utopian") communities, or "New Age" movements in general.

This first edition of this book is great, but it is now out of print and out of date with the publication of a brand new edition of Jeff Merrifield's book, entitled: Damanhur: The Story of the Extraordinary Italian Artisitic and Spiritual Community (2006). Much has been updated and added to the new edition, including more than 150 black and white photos. The Federation of Damanhur is essentially about research and change, and the new book reflects many innovations in a number of areas of this remarkable community.

This is a detailed history of an Italian New Age Community that sounds like they have achieved utopia. The people have combined creativity, self-fulfillment, simple living, art and spirituality in an atmosphere of peace. There is hope for our world and this community reveals a path to a posssible, brighter furture. I am buying several copies of this book for my friends, many of whom have expressed a longing to create a group such as the Damanhurians.
