Sevagram

Sevagram

[EN] Sevagram is a project which aims to establish an intentional community in the country around Padova, close to the Euganean Hills. Its core activity will be organic farming, but much more can be done.

Its ideological roots can be found in the anarchist and libertarian movement, together with the gandhian nonviolence. So, it will be a "place" to experiment daily and promote liberty, equality and brotherhood.

The name "Sevagram" is a tribute to Gandhi's ashram.

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 ....
