    Description

    Hello, I am a 34 years old guy, working as a host with guest houses in the Ragusa province, mainly in the summer season.
    I am passionate about ART, MUSIC (I study piano and in the past I experienced well music production with my personal gears, making original productions and remixes; I have knowledge about music synthesis, arrangement, composition), SCULPTURE (I am making paintings with clay masks), NATURE (I strongly believe in nature rights; of course I do gardening in my place), SPORT (amateur soccer, basketball, now I started Ju-jitsu lessons). I have a master degree in art and entertainment (La Sapienza University, Rome) and I am a certified music production technician (APM, Saluzzo). I am living in the beautiful countryside between Modica, Pozzallo and Scicli. Concerning my studies and passions, I have some ideas in which I am focusing, with the purpose of being able to build a network of people that cn allow me to work in my place, which objectively has excellent potential. I think that sharing ideas with the right people, talking, reasoning, is the best way to grow and understand ourselves. I love to spend time with good people, and I also need my moments of privacy (why to hide it?). I am really pleased to make my guests to know my area, going around together, giving advice etc.

    About the ideas mentioned above:

    - BUILDING A MUSIC PRODUCTION and RECORDING STUDIO (indeed the project is starting to materialize in the sense that I have a sound engineer that is working on the project for the acoustic aspects, and I started to search for a good quantity surveyor for the bureaucratic aspects); I already have some professional or semi professional gear such as synthesizer, digital piano, audio interface, microphone, studio monitor, 8 channel mixer.

    - STARTING A BnB or a similar activity (recently I have read about garden-sharing); I need to understand better.

    About my property:

    I have 10.000 m2 of land, located between Modica, Scicli and Pozzallo, the see is 7 km far from here. I am having care of my country by myself. I have, for the most part, olives and carrubo trees, but even some citrus (orange, mandarin, cedar, lemon) and other sort of trees (white mulberry, prickly pears, walnut); recently I planted some mango and avocado trees. I love succulents and the apartment is surrounded by this kind of plants, many variety of aloe on all. There is often something to do for which I may need a hand, because for now I do live alone and I'm not able to do everything that I want and that is needed by myself. So, here I am.

    Of course, IT IS IN MY INTEREST TO ORIENT MY COUNTRY HOUSE TOWARDS ECO-SUSTAINABILITY and maybe ARTISTIC RESIDENCE.

    Ah, I have two beautiful dogs named Emi and Tricky, and two kittens named Blu and Tigre.

    I speak good english and of course Italian and sicilian dialect; good at understanding spanish.

    I am a truly respectful person.

    Help

    I may need help in everything about having care of the trees, planting plants, wood cutting, irrigation system maintenance, and all of the things have to be done about giving the best treatment for the nature around the house. There are both simple and tiring tasks; it's up to you and what you prefer to do.
    Moreover I'd like to meet professionals - even just for receiving advices and points of view - such as: eco-sustainability experts, architects, engineers, technology experts, agronomists and plants experts, humanists, naturopaths, spiritual and open minded people, and last but not least artists of all kind. If you are a professional in one of those areas, and you want to give an hand in some tasks - depending on the period - with having care of the green, while having the opportunity to relax in a beautiful place, sharing your knowledge about your work, and visit the beautiful baroque cities and nature around the province of Ragusa, you are truly welcome!

    JUST WRITE TO ME AND ASK ME IF - IN THE PERIOD OF YOUR INTEREST - I HAVE SOME TASKS IN WHICH YOU CAN HELP ME. IF I DO, WE WILL TALK ABOUT ALL OF THE DETAILS, SUCH AS HOURS A DAY, DIFFICULTIES etc.

    Certainly we will not exceed 5 hours of help a day.

    Accommodation

    I can offer 2 places to sleep, you will have your private room with 2 single beds. We will share the same bathroom and kitchen. We will organize to have the food we prefer, I will buy. Of course you will be welcomed with good local food (for example I have my own production olive oil). I work from about 4 years with hospitality, so I know what does it mean! ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can enjoy your time off in my place, that is pretty relaxing. Of course if you want to be free to explore the zone by yourself, you will need a car. However - when I'm free - I'm happy to go around together with my car and visiting places, go to the beach or whatever we want to do. All about enjoying ourselves in the best way! :D
