Abstract

The landscape can never be separated from its deep symbolic value, this is especially true when it takes on the sense of the sublime, a high value, in which spirituality, aesthetics, identity and knowledge come together in a mystical meaning like the landscape of the places of prayer, the privileged elements of the landscape full of ancestral perceptions that the observer feels unconsciously, inseparable from the genius loci. The paper proposes an experimentation, a project for enhancement, of a special place of prayer, the village and the sanctuary of St. Peter's of the Ienca in L'Aquila (IT), to prevent that the Apennine landscape monuments are surrounded by parking lots and sellers souvenirs, that the sublime becomes very least, and this can only be done with the knowledge that the landscape is dynamic, that there is no Landscape without Project, which its symbolic value is in the representation and in the memory of a place of silence and loneliness, that must remain so, governing all the contradictions.
