  • Description


    Hello everyone,

    We invite you and take part in our life for some months in enriching our community with your help, your culture and your presence.
    This is an educative environment for children between 3 and 11 years. We grow BEAUTY inspired by libertarian pedagogy, diffuse education and in the nature.
    We build together networks and community, believing that education is a powerful means of social change. We are inspired by a lot of educational model that we integrate for a free, healthy and full development of every single individual. Libertarian education is one of our founding, main principle: total respect for dignity of every children as a person. Adults accompany these small big persons facilitating process of learning, with love and competence integrating the libertarian pedagogic approach with diffuse education and in the nature, active pedagogy and Montessori’s materials, Freinet natural method and Freire popular pedagogy, empathic and non violent communication and artistic expression. We take care of the educating community with an alive self –formation journey for educators and parents. The projects is completely self managed through horizontal process of decisions and is completely no profit.

    Our project is inserted in a peculiar social context and is not born from the lackness of general purposes on the territory that we live but from the relations between families believing in the strenght of an educational community, in a different didactic offer (different from what in Italy is considered tradional).

    The territorial context is close to Torino, between hills and small villages in which is possible to find both families and individuals escaped from the chaos of the city and generations of people with roots on these lands. The settlement is made of woods and rivers, path and stones not usually considered as educational environment as the aim to discover the close city, shops and museums, bakers and markets, libraries and parks. The project is born to reach an eterogeneous group of families with different interests and beahaviours but with a common sight, a common vision about pedagogy and education.

  • Help


    It would be amazing sharing your language and your culture with children and transmit them randomly through art creation or whatever your competence are.

    What are we searching for? A positive attitude in circle around the "school", a mild begin as observer just to understand how it all works, a butterfly dancing between energy's movement and children's eyelids trembling, a sister, a brother, a friend. We imagine you enough flexible to invent with us her/his role, today helping with babies during our meetings, tomorrow creating something with them. We couldn't give you a detailed timetable as you should move with us following our necessities (always open to hear you ones).
