    "The secret is not to take care of the butterflies , but take care of the garden , so the butterflies come to you .
    At the end there is not who you were looking for, but who was looking for you."


    I work in office in town the morning 7/14 and home afternoon/weekend.

    I'm taking care from many years of the house where I live.

    Just need help, from time to time.

    NOW I NEED MOSTLY A PLUMBER TO INSTALL A WATER HEATER IN THE BATHROOM DOWNSTAIRS. But work is not lacking of course: inside painting walls and doors and mowing grass or cutting branches

    I CAN OFFER ACCOMODATION and FOOD FOR AROUND ONE WEEK.

    NOT INTERESTED IN COUPLES: no work for two and I can’t afford.


    My home is easily found near Asti:

    - 3km on road to Chivasso and from higway A21 ovest.

    - Bus number 1:from station (piazza Marconi) ENDS at deposit VALBELLA (1 km far from my house walking on the same road).

    - Buses Vigo , place 24 from bus station (direction Castelnuovo Don Bosco) stop in front of my house.
    From Asti you can reach Torino, Milano, Genova in half/one hour.

    i can help you to find timetables online when you're sure to come and tell me from where/when you arrive.
    IF YOU ARRIVE AT THE STATION JUST CALL ME AND I COME BY CAR.

    Ours is a large house built by my great-grandmother.
    From 1997 year i came back here, the house has changed many inhabitants: at present my sister living next door, Giuseppe the barman of the cafè nearby, neighbours running a didactic farm sharing same yard.
    i escape abroad from time to time working in wa me too or visiting friends.
    I am in CS, WS, volunteerbase, workaway, nightswapping,... trying to select people with good energy,



    . I like to show my guests the wonders of our land or to suggest events or concerts (mostly art, poetry and blues)
    I prefer working with music: reggae, hip hop, blues, soul, african, funky, ... IF YOU DON'T LIKE CAN BE ANNOYING

    -I try to reduce consumption of water and electricity.

    - I organized items for swapping. They are available for workawayers as well (clothes, books, bags, tools,..) .
    - i have a bike available but we move quite easily in all directions following paths in meadows and woods

    In the afternoon, coming back from school i would need to relax a bit. But then start working till the sun goes down.

    So in the morning my guest-worker/s should open windows to let sun warm the house, hang out the laundry, wash dishes from the dinner,...
    Useful a driving licence .
    Welcome awareness, humour, aesthetic and practical sense.
    I have good relationships with my neighbours who run the didactic farm, with the bar/restaurant next door, my sister and with my mother living in front.

    They don't speak much other languages, but sometimes need help, so good relationships with them are important and we can get friendship, food and gratitude in exchange.

    I offer to workawayers good food mostly vegetarian.

    In the evenings (if we're not too tired) and sometimes in weekends (because i'm a human being and need to stop from time to time ) we could explore together places and events in the surroundings,, listen to music, watch videos, chat, visit friends,...

    What else ...

    In autumn i put thermostats low when sun shines . If you need more, better considering other places.

    I eat quite everything . mostly vegetables, pasta, fruit , cereals . I don't like meat but if it comes as present from a friend I accept and share with guests. If you like to drink a glass of red wine, our area has very good ones.
    i'm a smoker. but i do only out of the house.
