    HI! me and my mum are living in a 500 year's old house, near the natural park of Circeo, in Terracina, Italy.
    We are starting a project that we hopefully lead into a alimentary and energetic self-sufficiency, always trying to take the most ecological and eco-sostenible way.
    At the same time we want to make transform the house to a cultural and artistic meeting point, trying to create synergies with the our environment and the country, making the house as refuge of artists of different disciplines.

    We are always looking for learn and share our knowledge

    Actually we are working on the renovation and maintenance of the house.
    But also we are working around permaculture and we want to reach to renewable energy. We also are looking for the receipt to aplicate the new technologies (always open source and open hardware) and fuse the old casale with the 21th century philosophy and knowledge.
    We have also an cultural association and we use to make events.

    We are in a early stage of our live project and we need as much hands as we can! We need tons of knowledges and energies to make this possible!
