  • Description


    Hi Everybody,
    I'm Martino, I was born in 2017, and I'm the boss of the family.
    My father Mauro is a biodynamic farmer, he produces a lot of things, first of all, wine!
    He's also a good cook and I'm very happy because eating is my passion.
    Silvia is my mother, she works for a big company and sometimes has to go away for work and I do not see her for a few days. She's also a basketball player and she loves every kind of sport.
    Ginevra is my sister, she's 12 years old, she's very delicate with me. She plays the piano and she loves tv even if my dad does not want her to watch it.
    We live in beautiful countryside, 6 km from the Lucca city walls.
    Every morning, from Monday to Friday I go to city centre because my school is there and my parents go to work.
    I wrote this letter because my mum sometimes needs a hand with me during the weekend and in the evening, My dad needs to improve his English and because Ginevra loves to live in a very busy house with many people.
