  • Beschreibung


    We are a nice family with 3 children of 6, 11and 13 years. We love travel and meet new people and cultures and we have lived many years in Genova, Rome and Haiti.
    I work as advisor for public and private organizations engaged in innovative social projects, empowering processes, community building and institutional strengthening. In Italy and abroad. My husband works for the Slow Food Foundation and he coordinates a very large program of gardens promotion in Africa.
    To combine better our professional life (based in Bra and in Turin but with a lot of travel Italy and abroad) with the care of our children and the life style that we love, 5 years ago we choose to come back to my husband native land. The life quality there is very high and we can express our life style: community, easy, sustainable, slow and nice.
    We have a nice, big home with a lot of garden, and we are working to built a co-housing project very closed from where we are living.
    We live in Narzole, in the famous area of Langhe and Roero (CN), one of the most interesting of the Piedmont region: the most famous Italian wine production, caves and vineyards , excellent food and the strong experience of Slow Food head office, castles, museums, sanctuaries and churches, nature and parks, archaeological sites and a lot of musical and cultural events are the Narzole frame.
    Since 3 years , we and more families are building togheter an eco-project for co-living and co-working with a supportive and convivial style.
    We are a nice group with a lot of interesting projects and experiences (strowbale building, art, and the new born democratic school for our children and natural agriculture ) and our eco-project is growing fast.

    Narzole, the village where we live, has 3500 people, is very close to Alba and Bra, and it takes 50 minutes from Turin. Bus service link it with Alba, Bra, Cherasco, Fossano and Ceva. In Fossano and Bra (15 minutes by car o bus) there is the railway station to reach Tourin (and from there all the Italy!) and the beaches (1 our and half by train).
    There are basic shops, bar and pub, schools and services. We have a garden where you can also help, if you like.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    On their time off, there are not many sights in Narzole: some bar, one pub, 3 restaurants, some local holidays, the street market every Sunday morning, popular dance school, a gym wit a lot of disciplines, but not a cultural life.
    Instead, 10 minutes from here, by car or by bus, there are really more opportunity.
    It will be the first experience with volunteers, but we are used to host people in our home also for long periods. Everyday it was a wonderful experience for us and for our children that are very welcoming and accustomed to share their daily life with not family members.
