Sotto la tenda di Abramo [Under the tent of Abraham] tells of the possible and necessary dialogue between religions and men through the community experience in the ancient Syrian Antiochian monastery of Deir Mar Musa el-Habashi (St Moses the Abyssinian), a place of hospitality and Catholic and Muslim interreligious exchange perched in the mountains of Syria.
The monks photographed by Ivo Saglietti are men and women from different churches and different countries who experience daily difficulties and the richness of diversity, showing that God is one and that we can live together in faith, regardless of professed religions. The intense black and white in this work, which documents the daily life of the community, well represents the contrast of light and shadow of two worlds in constant ideological conflict, that in the enclave of Deir Mar Musa al-Habashi find instead a place of dialogue and constructive discussion.
