  • Description


    Our family consists in my partner Peppe, me, Alice (7) and Pietro (2). We live in our house in the center of Palermo. Both of us work as freelancers with flexible time and often from home.
    Peppe works as graphic designer and he also run rooms for rent. I work in cultural and social projects and I am the co-funder of an independent theatre space where we produce and stage shows and cultural events.
    We need someone, speaking English, helping with our children.
    In our place travellers can find moments of sharing and exchange and also independence and free time for themselves.
