    Update, Jan 2017:
    I'm looking for a volunteer with at least basic italian to help my aunt in Grosseto city centre, Tuscany. The help required is looking after the two dogs (mother and daughter) and helping in the house. She often goes in Rome so you have the chance to visit the eternal city too!

    Summer 2016:
    My place is a village called Tonnicoda. It is uncontaminated, pure, wild and very very small. My house is very big with a lot of green and woods all around.

    We need help to build up a nice and big garden, to maintain the house, to cook (my mom is a very good cook and you have the chance to learn very good italian recipes:) and even to organizing and living our events. During the last Saturday of July and about the middle of August, there will be a couple of festivals. I take part in the organisation so you can even be part of the event planning, setting and enjoying processes :) During the summer, especially August, there will be all the family, they are very open minded and nice, there are even children and 2 dogs (one is a puppy) and I cannot guarantee to stay/visit Rome also, Tonnicoda does not have (and doesn't need:) wifi.

    July 2016 only: I plan to work during the weekdays in Rome and go there from Friday afternoon to Sunday. In this way, if you arrive during the weekdays, you have the opportunity to visit Rome and enjoy this beautiful city too. The little village is a complete opposite reality compared to the biggest city of Italy. If you have a car or a motorcycle you can get here by yourself but if you don't or you prefer a lift, I can pick you up when you arrive from the place where you are and drop you off when you leave, according to my work hours (office hours).

    PS: I am new to this (Fri-1-July-2016) so no feedback as yet.
