- We operate in a way that increases the positive impacts and decrease the negative ones on the local community and the environment.
We support the local community economically by bringing our groups to this locations rural areas in Italy.
local women, teach our classes, enjoying to share our culture and traditions.
- Many of our friend from all over the world visited our Casale della Fontana del Papa when it was a ruin and the olive grove suffering from years of complete abandon, three years ago.
In our dreams and with our vision, Claudio and I saw it completely restored, the olive grovegiving its rich fruits and you as our guests at Fontana del Papa.
True, we were dreaming, but now our "project" has become reality. The olive grove has become a organic park and the casale shines in all its ancient and imposing beauty. We have worked with tenacity, passion and love.
