    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will live a farm lifestyle in the centre of Italy. I require help in the morning. The usual activities are: feeding the animals, providing them care and cuddles). There is occasional repairing and fixing to do, shopping and cleaning the staples. For people interested in cultural activities we can plan and design together shows, events and festival. I sometimes work as a Theatrical author, my shows are mostly related to historical and traditional religious events.

    Accommodation

    I've got 3 beds in the farmhouse in a room with an external bathroom. And in another room with bunk beds and a bathroom.

    I can provide basic Italian food.

    I would ask you to bring a little bit of money for your extra food need (pizza, alcohol, candies, etc. etc.)
    I am happy to share three meals per day.

    We can eat together or, if you prefer, you can eat privately.
    Sometimes I will cook, but sometimes I will ask you to cook, or we can cook together depending on the daily activities.
