    Hi, we are a "normal Family" : Sara, Marco and a little Myriam. I'm Sara and I work whit disability in the secondary school, Marco is a carpenter and he built furniture and wooden toys and Myriam is our daughter and she is four years old. We live in a big and beautiful house when we moved recently so we still have plenty to do, in the house and in the garden. Near the house there is Marco's carpentry.
    We live in Sasso Marconi, a little and green town very near to the beautiful Bologna.

    We need volunteers for many types of jobs related to house (general maintenance, white wash the walls...) and the garden and vegetable garden. Marco might need help in carpentry to build the home furniture or toys and also we might need help whit Myriam or housecleaning.
    But above all we like the idea of meeting new people, sharing our home and what we are.
