History of Santacittarama

recently occurred to us that all of 25 years have passed since
Santacittarama was officially inaugurated on 21st March 1990. It was
then located in a small villa, generously offered by the late Vincenzo
Piga, located on the outskirts of Sezze Romano (Latina), and the
original residents were Ajahn Thanavaro and Anagarika John Angelori.
mark this significant milestone we thought to begin a “History of
Santacittarama” archive – to include articles, photos, comments and
reflections – that we will build up gradually in instalments. At some
point it could be the basis for a book to be published and given out
freely, for example, on the occasion of the official opening of the
temple. To start the ball rolling, here is the beginning of an article
announcing the opening of the first Theravadin monastery in Italy,
written by Ajahn Sucitto for the Forest Sangha Newsletter, issued in
April 1990. Updates to the archive will be announced in the “News” page
on our website.

in advance. Coming for a brief visit during the day there is no need to
give notice, unless wishing to speak with a monk, in which case one
should make an appointment beforehand. Please remember that Monday is a
day of silence and rest.
