  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of mum and an 20 year old son. we live in a house located in the woods, near a small town in the province of Brescia, northern Italy.
    The place is quiet, not very suitable for those who love party life.
    We love meeting other people, we try to grow in mutual respect. We have been volunteering for many years. Mainly we deal with art, even if the first necessities are turned to the arrangement of the house.
    We can help with knowledge of oil painting, silk painting, bodypainting, Italian and vegetarian cuisine (we do not have a vegetarian diet at home only).


    Siamo una famiglia composta da papà mamma e un figlio di 20 anni. viviamo in una casa situata nel bosco, in un piccolo paese in provincia di Brescia, nord Italia. Brescia dista 30 Km.
    Il luogo è tranquillo ,non molto adatto a chi ama la vita festaiola.
    Amiamo conoscere altre persone ,cerchiamo di crescere nel rispetto reciproco. Da molti anni facciamo volontariato. Principalmente ci occupiamo di arte, anche se le prime necessità sono rivolte alla sistemazione delle casa.
    Possiamo aiutare con conoscenze di pittura olio , pittura su seta ,bodypainting , cucina italiana e vegetariana, ( in casa non abbiamo un'alimentazione solo vegetariana).

    Help

    We need various works of masonry initially, and keeping the forest, even if we have the idea to create permanent sculptures in our small land (6000 m.). I never learned English, it could be an opportunity for exchange.


    Abbiamo necessità di vari lavori inizialmente di muratura ,piccoli scavi, taglio legna, e tenuta del bosco ,anche se in programma abbiamo l'idea di creare nel nostro piccolo terreno ( 6000 m. ) delle sculture permanenti .Non ho mai imparato l'inglese ,potrebbe essere un'occasione di scambio.
