    You can learn Italian, and Reggio Emilia is very close to many beautiful cities.

    We leave early in the morning and we come back at 2.00 pm. During the afternoons I need some help depending on the several commitments at my workplace ( but there will be a schedule on 17th Sept so we'll arrange the timetable) and sometimes in the evenings. The weekends are free, from friday, 6:00 o'clock p.m. to Monday 1:30 p.m.
    Stefano is a lovely cheerful teen aging boy, who loves drawing, painting ( sometimes), playing Lego star wars characters; he is fond of History and cavaliers. He practices volleyball, horse-riding and goes to English classes. Stefano is very sensitive and needs to click with the people around him, otherwise he can become really naughty. He's very energetic and likes dancing (when he’s in the mood) in the middle of the living room, especially when he's been staying sitting down, doing his homework for long hours. You can also help us in the orchard.
    He needs a good friend.
