The Experience

Hello, my name is Ambrogio and I've been working with nature for all of my life. I have a big farm in Sicily of cereal agriculture. I would like to host positive and happy people who loves nature. I’m looking for someone who can help me with the cultivation of my land in the full respect of biodiversity. I’m also looking for someone who can help with maintenance and renovation :)

This was my third and last experience in a two-month journey across Italy and I could not be happier. It was the perfect end to a beautiful and intense period of volunteering in eco-projects. I learned, shared, and enjoy fully with Ambro e Rosa in a calm place in the middle of the mountains, of Sicily, -and of the world!. During three weeks I was part of the house in a very cozy, confident, and joyful atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful animals and eating the greatest simple and delicious food. Vario family is now my extended family in Sicily! Thank you for your love and generosity. Baccio!

Uau! This is the most important experience of my life. We're 6 people from different countries and we have a lovely and hard social living. At first we had some problems with the host, but we can solve everything talking about. I worked all days except one cause I ask to do a day off and it was not a problem. I really made friends and learned to much about agriculture. The food is so special! You will see! Thank you Ambrogio and Rosetta, I'm so grateful.

Realmente podría definir este mes como
Una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida personal y laboral! Aprender de otra cultura y del trabajo de la tierra fue increíble! Ellos me recibieron y trataron como parte de su familia, el trabajo que se realiza es arduo por momentos pero es parte de la experiencia y de aprender la importancia del trabajo de la tierra y los animales! Aprendí muchas cosas acerca de la granja, de la cosecha y de la cocina siciliana! Definitivamente regresaré sabiendo más italiano para poder enterdernos mejor! Los llevaré siempre en mi corazón a mi familia siciliana💕🇲🇽🇮🇹

Vivir en Fontana Murata es como un sueño sus paisajes son una locura! Aprendes mucho de la tierra, de los animales, de la comida típica Siciliana. Son una Familia y te hacen sentir parte de ella desde el primer momento. Como mi primera experiencia fue muy hermosa...Ambrogio y Rossetta son personas muy amables que disfrutan de los intercambios culturales y todo el tiempo te explican y te enseñan cosas muy interesantes es un placer escucharlos! Nunca había comido tan rico y tanto como en esa casa jajaja. Lo recomiendo muchísimo!

Fontana Murata è stata la mia prima esperienza in Italia, e non poteva essere migliore! Ambrogio e Rosa sono persone meravigliose, con un belissimo raporto con la terra, con gli animali e tutta la natura.. Ho imparato tantissimo in questi giorni e mi sono sentita veramente della famiglia. Il posto è belissimo! Tutti i giorni, dopo il lavoro, ci fermiavamo per vedere il tramonto nelle montagne.. Fontana Murata sarà sempre nel mio cuore, voglio tornare presto :)
