Il Pollaio del Re

Il Pollaio del Re

It is not easy in a few words to paint a complex situation that could be contained in a single adjective 'Harmony'. To be carried away by a magical aura, an escape from the city. A small oasis located in the Tuscan countryside (one of the most beautiful places in Italy) to be used as open-air laboratory. To 'build' this we need special people, with an open mind without excess .. the key words here are 'love and passion' in everything you do..not for money, not for others but for yourself ....
