    We are Massimo and Guido a couple of men (57/59yo), living in a big historic house in Avigliana, a small medieval village 25km far from Torino.
    We do a creative job in town and we love animals, gardening, walking, doing interior decoration, cooking, make many home DIY tasks, we love music and almost exchange experiences with interesting young people around the world. We both live in Torino but because of the pandemics we moved in our beloved country-house one year ago in order to make us and our 3 dogs and 2 cats more confortable, having an huge garden.
