  • Description


    At the moment my family has left for a long trip and I need help here because I will have to do several jobs with workshops in schools and some festivals during the summer season.
    Down here the description of us in the village..

    We are Daniele and Francesca with our two children (7 and 13 years old). We want to live a simple life in a beautiful place so we decided to stay for a few years in this small village where, around us, live other young families of friends. Some of them are organic farmers, some are artisans, some are very creative people, some are animal breeders, some do nothing. But each of them has decided how to live their lives and has taken refuge in these beautiful mountains.
    My partner and I work in street arts, setting up play areas at many different types of festivals all over Italy.
    so we work in our small carpentry shop creating many types of games for our play areas or for sale.
    We also make homemade bread using organic flour produced by our neighbor and grown in the fields around here and leavened by our own yeast; we bake the bread in the village's communal wood-fired oven. Once a week we take it to Cagli to deliver it to many friends, door to door.

    We have bees and also a few animals like chickens and dogs and a small vegetable garden.

    Where we live is a place not so far from important cities rich in history and beautiful natural attractions like rivers, woods and mountains.

    We also collaborate with an association of crazy friends to revive a house in the middle of a protected forest very close to here where you can only get there by walking. Our goal is to be able to use this house to host walkers and tourists who come to visit this piece of paradise.
