  • Description


    It is a bizarre open-air "laboratory" where everything is constantly evolving immersed in the Tuscan countryside away from the chaos of big cities. A 'perfectly messy' place outside the box where you can feel free from prejudice and stress.

    I am a free man (or I try to be...) who has lived on art and dreams for a long time. I lead a modest life and try to recycle everything I can. I love simple people, honest and sincere.

    I paint, I make small artistic creations, I sew by myself what I wear I take care of the hens and I am trying to restore the "hortus conclusus" to be as self-sufficient as possible.

    Well if I'm here of course it's because I need HELP and I'm looking for fit and rustic guys: pioneers, very easy going, pragmatic, very open minded, handymen with a sense of humor, do-it-yourself bricklayers, genius, carpenter, acrobat, gardener, plumber, electrician, mechanic, woodcutter, farmer, inventor, etc.

    If you have 'special needs' .... remember to bring them with you. So you will be sure to find what you want. ;)

    Better read carefully before wasting time and money on both sides.

    ***** IMPORTANT *****

    1 - Send request in the short term - Long term “reservations” are too difficult to manage.

    2 - Please also indicate your zodiac sign.

    3 - Enter your Instagram / Facebook account when sending your request (just to know who I open the door to ...) Thank you.

    Small gardening tasks in general, clean up and repair what some volunteers have destroyed :(
