We are a small group of families connected by values and friendship, who want to live together and share activities and common interests. None of us knows how long it will take to restore the abandoned farmhouse and its land, but we all want to work hard on this mutual project.
The project leads participants to rediscover how to traditionally dye plants and the dying art of natural textiles and fibers (especially linen and silk), a unique industry. In the meantime, we will study new ideas, conduct new experiments, and create new activities. We want to start collaborating with universities and important agri-food companies in the Marche region. These are new challenges for new growth in a lifestyle you can see firsthand.
