LUMEN Ecovillage is one of the longest-lived and most prosperous intentional communities in Italy. A community of families who have joined a social experiment centred on the values of health promotion, environmental sustainability, inner growth, solidarity.
LUMEN is an intentional community, founded in 1992 by Davide Pirovano and Milena Simeoni, currently consisting of 60 people. Thanks to their great welcoming spirit, other people found accommodation in the large farmhouse and helped to renovate the building and expand the associative activities. Over the years, the LUMEN ecovillage has thus been created, an intentional community of people moved by ideals of peace, ethics, respect for the environment and attention to the harmonious development of human beings through the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
The ecovillage is fully self-sufficient in economic terms, partially self-sufficient in energy and food.
