Rina Sestito Arce wrote Gotiqvantica, a book about the esoteric dimension of the mosto beautiful gothic cathedral of Europe. An initiator journey, a mystical view about the creations of the builders of God.
The Issenheim altarpiece
Rina Sestito Arce wrote Le retable d’Issenheim, grimoire alchimique pour Compostelle, a book written in french and german versions, giving an innovating and mystical reading of this master piece registered in the world heritage of UNESCO.
Rina SESTITO ARCE graduated from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Geneva and she has always had a fervent interest in art, history and archaeology. She starts as a secondary school teacher and goes on to integrate the Protocol Department at the City of Geneva.
She then follows her husband to Colmar – Alsace – for his work and discovers together with her three children. A few years later, she aspires to get back into active life and discovers the so-called “alternative” medicine. Intrigued, she enrolls in several classes, and in particular kinesiology and biological decryption of illnesses and life events.
She also worked as a translator – interpreter at the Colmar Regional Court and at the moment of taking her oath, she meets a colleague who informs her that the Tourism Office is searching for Italian-speaking guides.
Working as a guide becomes a pretext to undertake research on art and history and also on traditions and legends. One day she makes a lapsus by typing “argotica” in her search engine: an article in Italian appears, it talks about the esoteric dimension of the gothic cathedral and this discovery will not let her go.

A cathedral is more than a religious place, it is the therapeutic Path, a healing building : to be convinced, it is necessary to know the power of terrestrial energies, of the geometry, of the colors, of the material used for the construction and the symbols shelled in the building.
It is time to build a new world, a sustainable world which would be able to link Science and Spirituality, Reason and Unconsciousness, Rational and Intuition : Man and Woman !
The irony is that it seems there is a “coincidence” between the vision that our Ancients had of the Afterlife and the observations made in quantum physics or with persons who lived a near-death experience.
And to say that when she started as a guide what bored her most was to explain the cathedral…
