  • Description


    LASTEST NEWS: We are not hosting because of the covid situation, we still are trying to understand what and when will be able to start again in a safe way for us and volunteers too.



    We finally are in our new house, ready to host again! It's a country house near Bergamo, in Seriana valley (Pradalunga).
    We are in a little lateral valley, at the and of a private country road, rounded by the woods and near a little creek. The fields, woods, orchard and vegetable gardens are near the house. We live with two (almost three) donkeys, our cat and our dog.

    My name is Giampietro, I am teacher, but I like stay as long as possible outside, walking in the woods, speaking with people, working in the garden, in the forest or in the vegetable garden in a "bioregional" way, taking care of the place in which I live. I'm even part of "Bioregional path Italy".
    Sara is laughter-yoga teacher and dance movement therapist. She loves stay in nature, animals, hear for music and dance.
    We are really happy when people can enjoy the place, take care of it and of himself and herself, experimenting a country way of life in contact with nature and with the satisfaction to do things with your proper hands, even searching for your deep inside in a daily simple way.

    We live with a dog, a cat, two donkeys, four chickens and two ducks, and wild animals and plants around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Research of happines and personal talent, try to share life and responsability with all beings is our deep aim. We found that this is possible more in our daily work and semplicity and contact with nature than in books. But we still love books and you will find here a lot (mostly in italian)!
    Topics: nonviolence, rights for all human and non homan beings, dance and movement, bioregionalism, alternative economics, gardening and so on.
    Here generally pass friends and young people searching for a place to stay, to dialoge and reserch together.
    Any way we love each other inter-indipendence: we love that each could have his place, his time to stay in peace and alone and enjoy this quite and deep place.

  • Help


    In this period we are still making great and extraordinary works inside and outside the house, prepairing the woods for winter, cleaning and ordering the woods after the dejections of last winter, cutting brambles and grass all around.
    We use regoularly brush cutter and pruning knife.
    Imagine that we ask for hard works too couse we need them a lot. It's even important for us that you are a little autonomus on houseworks (cleaning, washing dishes, cooking and so on) that will be shared all together. We are vegetarians but if you needs some meat you can buy and cook for yourself.
    We love work hardly but having fun, take care of our place and animals and have time for relax near the creek or in our hammocks.
    If you have ANY question or request or needs please ask, we love persons here can find a good place for them, so it's important to clear needs and expectations.
    For us working here is the way in wich you share the beauty and the responsability of taking care of a piece of world, as we do.

    Bergamo upper city (Città Alta) is really beautiful, and generally peolpe really love it. Near our house there is even an old medieval village, a good mountain, and you can start to make a lot of trips.
    From here you can even reach Milano and others cities in the nord of Italy.
    Just remember that to move from our house could be better if you have a car. Otherwise you need to know you shoud do by foot 2,5 km to go to the first train stop. 2 km from here there is even a long bycicle road along Serio's river
