Hi, I'm Riccardo a young retired who decide to live in mountain, near Turin, to give a new life to this place and enjoy the nature.
I have always worked in building construction, being an electrician and other trades and now my son (Enrico) and I, are wants to fix the house and work within a hectare and a half of forest for future projects in that area.
The house is surrounded by woods in Torre Pellice municipality, who hosted the Turin's Olympic winter game (ice hokey) of 2006.
Around is full of mountain paths and I try to let them clean so the people can usually pass. I would like to make a garden, have animals and renew the place, step by step.
I have been a traveller all over the world during 90's, I had been to Syria, Iraq, Libya, U.S.A, Siberia, India and many other places. I am open minded and ready to receive any culture.

I can give some work knowledge and you will be rewarded by seeing how your work can change things and you will learn to value your work :)
It's very quiet and peaceful where I live. If you like to hike in the forest, read or just sit quietly after the tasks are done, then this is the place for you.
I need someone who can help me with wood (cutting, cleaning), working the land for a garden, repair the house, pick fruits (nuts and chestnuts), and also repair and make structure for the paths and the land.
