    I am a cultural-hybrid who has been traveling since the beginning. I have a 300 year old stone farmhouse that I have been restoring alone, mostly by hand and sustainably following old vernacular techniques and some new stuff. I would like very much to have company, insight, hands to continue the work and to see my house be the kind of wondrous gathering place I think it can be.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    I am an artist, teacher, prof of communications, philosophy, activism (and other things)... I study sense and sense-making and am developing various teaching practices including: Social Literacies, Continuum Politics and Situation Design. A lot of the experiences at my house are foreign to those of us who have grown up in urban centers. Living here is an ongoing encounter with one's senses, comforts, limits, presumptions and curiosity.

    Working on my house, I have learned a lot about local and vernacular construction (what was sustainable before 'sustainability') and would love to learn from others about architecture, gardening & permaculture, languages (esp: Spanish, Greek & French), culture, art and activism internationally.

    House is full of books, art, tools, things to make, to improvise and find solutions for.
    Near Asolo, Bassano, Padova, Vicenza and Venice on the southern sloe of the Italian Alps below Cima Grappa.

    I love sharing, teaching and working out how to change the world and my long-term plan is to create a center.

    I am especially interested in meeting people who might be interested in long-term friendships and house-sharing.
    Wishes all...

  • Alojamiento


    Stone farmhouse about 20 minutes from trains (Bassano) with bus to just below house. On the side of the Alps under Cima Grappa. About an hour fifteen NW from Venice, 45-1 hour N of Padova & east of Vicenza.

    House is old, primitive, authentic to its origins, otherwise very comfy. Guestroom with queen size bed made of two singles) and attic with multiple bed possibilities, also, a sleep sofa in entrance/office and kitchen/living room.

    Big bathtub (shower parts to install) heated by wood burning water heater, divine but requires some patience.

    Perfect environment for anyone interested in sustainability and vernacular architecture, building, living.

    PS: I have a landline for calls and constant WiFi - i just dont always have enough time to respond to inquiries...
    if you don't hear from me, send a quick reminder! Thank you.
