2012 Location announced!

Travis Price has just returned from scouting the Spirit of Place 2012 project site in, drumroll please.......FLORENCE, ITALY! The project will be an international memorial to commemorate Amerigo Vespucci, the Florentine explorer for whom America was named. In July-August 2012, the Spirit of Place team will build the project at the Renaissance-era Belvedere fortress (seen above) overlooking the city of Florence and the Duomo.

If you'd like to become involved with Spirit of Place - Spirit of Design by participating in the build or contributing to this great cause, email Kathleen Lane at To read about our last build in Nepal, click here. You can donate by clicking on the "Donate" icon above right.
