    Filicudi is a magical place, really hard to be described. It is a small small island in the Eolie archipelago in the north of Sicily. You will stay in a true paradise, far from modernity, of an outstanding beauty, with a sky full of stars(no public illumination), with no acustic pollution, with a sea so perfectly blue that leaves in silence contemplating it, with a really fascinating flora and marine life, full of friendly people (that i can introduce you or you can meet by yourself) but at the same time if you wanna stay alone you can do it more than any other place, full of walks, of beaches, of good food, a place to born again, not a turistic island, a unique place, just about 200 habitants that will probably became 1000 in july. Every friend of mine i brought left a part of their heart there... This is what came in my mind, i suggest you also to do a small research on the internet. You will also be able to improve or learn italian with me( i speak english if needed obviously) and from everyone you' ll meet, and if you are a musician, i am musician too so we can play togheter and learn from each other.

    Hi! I need an help to repaint the outside walls of two houses :one is very small, the other not, but we are not going to repaint every single wall, just the damaged ones. Then we have to repaint a kitchen and to do some manteniance work in the garden, and to keep the house clean. You will work with me, that i have no professional experience in painting or gardening but bit of smartness and 22 years old physical presence, and the occasionaly help of my neighbor (i hope).
