    Description

    Hello, I am sicilian, I was born in Switzerland. I use to travel around Italy and I lived in Catania, Rome, Brescia, Trento. I have studied as archaeologist. I love travelling, people, several cultures, nature and I hope I can mix and share all my different experiences by meeting new people in my house in Sicily. I live here with my 2 dogs.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We offer a place where sharing, enjoying, learning, in change of help for working at the house and the garden.

    I travelled and met many persons. as archaeologist, i can suggest you many places to visit, sometimes we can also plan some trip together. I can teach you italian, we can sing traditional songs, experience pottery hand making (sometimes I organize workshops with children) and sometimes you could enjoy some live music with my friends.
    Starting march many trees are already in flowers in Sicily, landscapes are beautyful, sunny days can be warm and food is one of things that people never forget after their visit in our beautyful island.
    We can also cook together and I can also teach you too cook some typical sicilian receipt.

    - Some of external wall need maintanance works.
    - build a barbecue and a natural (wood) cover for cars
    - put away the wall paper and maybe paint the wall of some room.
    - Raise some border limits using a vegetal henge.
    - Build a kennel for dog
    -
    I will appreciate also creative skills and ability for:

    - build a oven/kiln
    - murales on grey walls
    - garden projects (I will be glad to have someone that already knows how to do).

    People with experience in architecture would be helpful to suggest some ideas for restoring the house.

    NOVEMBER: HELP WITH OLIVES HARVEST!

    We would welcome a single or couple if you come with skills, willingness to help. Suggestion to renew the house are welcome!
    I will be flexible.
    PLEASE WRITE IN YOUR MESSAGE HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP.

    My real mission is to bring that house to life again!
    I have 2 dogs. I still don't know but I could probably be busy in prepararing an exam. In this case I would love some help to clean and cook while I am studying or I am away. Partecipation in cleaning common used parts of the house daily is always welcome.
    In July and august could be very hot. The town is at 560 m on sea level so at night is cooler then in other town like Catania.
    Thanks
