    Hello everybody !
    My name is Silvano, I am 55 and I live in the gorgeous countryside of the city of Genova (Genoa, Italy).
    Here you can experience a total immersion in both alpine and marine landscape, the Mediterranean sea is less than 1h away !
    I live in a beautiful house surrounded by forest and brooks, I have a lot of land but I need helpers to make many projects happen !
    I have the company of a cat and four hens.
    Here there is room for creativity and I am thrilled to hear your ideas and suggestion of how I could improve my land.
    My main interests besides country music are permaculture and ecoprojects (I have solar panels but I'd like to do more), yoga, meditation, overtones, singing and playing guitar.
    Since I have a full-time job in the city I won't be able to spend the whole day at home, so I look for independent, flexible and trustworthy people.
    We could work together a couple of hours in the late afternoon and dedicate the weekends to longer projects (about 5 hours) and of course you can have 2 days off whenever you want. I am not a strict host, I understand that you also probably want to explore and have time by yourself and I envision this workaway experience as an exchange opportunity of mutual help that should be enriching for both the workawayer and the host.
    The nearest bus stop is a 30 minutes walk from my house but I am willing to drive you to the train station when you need it or to drive you in town when I go to work.
    Even though we are quite isolated we have wifi and television.
    I eat only organic food, mainly from my garden and trees and I eat very few meet, but I can adapt my diet to your requirements.
    My 23 year-old daughter helps with all the outdoor activities whenever she is here.

    Please join us in our peaceful, wild piece of land !

    Silvano and Cecilia
