"The secret is not to take care of the butterflies , but take care of the garden , so the butterflies come to you .
At the end there is not who you were looking for, but who was looking for you."

Ours is a large house built by my great-grandmother.
From 1997 year i came back here, the house has changed many inhabitants: at present my sister living next door, Giuseppe the barman of the cafè nearby, neighbours running a didactic farm sharing same yard and my mum living next door. She’s still very active but as well needs help from time to time both in the house and land.
i escape abroad from time to time working in wa me too or visiting friends.
I am in CS, WS, volunteerbase, workaway, nightswapping,... trying to select people with good energy,
. I like to show my guests the wonders of our land or to suggest events or concerts (mostly art, poetry and blues)
I prefer working with music: reggae, hip hop, blues, soul, african, funky, ... IF YOU DON'T LIKE CAN BE ANNOYING
-I try to reduce consumption of water and electricity.
- I organized items for swapping. They are available for workawayers as well (clothes, books, bags, tools,..) .
- i have a bike available but we move quite easily in all directions following paths in meadows and woods

In the afternoon, coming back from school i would need to relax a bit. But then start working till the sun goes down.
So in the morning my guest-worker/s should open windows to let sun warm the house, hang out the laundry, wash dishes from the dinner,...
Useful a driving licence .
Welcome awareness, humour, aesthetic and practical sense.
I’m improving my relationships with my neighbours who run the didactic farm, with the bar/restaurant next door, my sister and with my mother living in front.
Throug my example they started understanding Workaway philosophy so workers presence is testimonial of its values.
They don't speak much other languages, but sometimes need help, so good relationships with them are important and we can get friendship, food and gratitude in exchange.
I offer to workawayers good food mostly vegetarian.
In the evenings (if we're not too tired) and sometimes in weekends (because i'm a human being and need to stop from time to time ) we could explore together places and events in the surroundings,, listen to music, watch videos, chat, visit friends,...

My son now works abroad and comes home just a few weeks. So his room is available and a private bathroom as well.
the house is 150 sm so privacy is possible. we share the kitchen, a studio with a double couchbed, a terrace.
In autumn i put thermostats low when sun shines and your task is opening windows in the morning to let the sun in.
If you need more warmth , better considering other places.
I eat quite everything . mostly vegetables, pasta, fruit , cereals . I don't like meat but if it comes as present from a friend I accept and share with guests. If you like to drink a glass of red wine, our area has very good ones.
i'm a smoker. but i do only out of the house.
