  • Description


    I'm an architect, I practice earth architecture and sustainable construction. I live in this town called Atina, and I'm trying to settle in this old country house, which is to renovate. We just made a sinergic garden, and we 'll have to plant some winter vegetables. Still there's not a true kitchen. Also there's a small local bamboo forest, with which I make some craftworks and light structures. We got some lands nearby, and in November we have olive harvest.

    Autres infos...

    The town is connected by some public bus lines, from Sora and Cassino, two of the biggest town thereabout.
    Very beautiful to see it's the Posta Fibreno Lake, about 15 km away from Atina, and the National Park of Abruzzo, wich are the surrounding mountains. During summertime, all the villages around come alive with a lot of events and Festivals, like theatre Festival, or Literature Festival and Music Festivals, like Atina Jazz, while during low seasons you can enjoy more tranquillity.
