Hall of the Earth: An amazing room built on the 'supernatural' visions of its creator
30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. This is the place that Oberto Airaudi startted his excavations and painting in 1977. The temple complexes which were inspired by a childhood dream he had of human civilization at age 10 are so large that they could hold the volume of Big Ben twenty times over.

With the help of over 16 people and twenty years they built it to what it is today. Funding the construction with Oberto Airaudi’s (or Falco as he prefers to be called) income as an insurance broker and multiple local businesses that were set up.

After being investigated for tax evasion by the local police and them finally hearing about the temples they saw them, seized them and have finally opened them for public viewing.
