The Experience

sto realizzando un luogo di condivisione di idee e stili di vita differenti perchè credo nella capacità creativa della diversità. Accogliere volontari con diverse abilità e provenienze mi sembra un buon modo per realizzare il mio progetto di coliving I volontari partecipano alla realizzazione del progetto in maniera attiva e possono vivere una vera esperienza locale. Abbiamo scelto di lasciare 2 giorni liberi a settimana per permettergli di visi

This was a deep experience, with a lot of work because we finished the project of coliving space. It was amazing to see everything done. I learned a lot about life and architecture (Daria is an amazing architect). I did a lot of friends who was volunteer too and I left this place some part of my heart. Thanks for everything!

I had my first experience as a worldpacker and it was really very good. I met wonderful travelers, and had unforgettable moments. Daria is a very demanding artist and kindness the works require a lot of attention and commitment and desire to learn, if you are not an orderly, clean and demanding person this is not a place for you. Daria took us to the house by the sea, she made us typical Italian meals she has a great heart

Grazie mille D'aria!

Daria's house is in the city center of Catania. great location, the rooftop is amazing! The project is really interesting and promising. Daria will welcome you in her house with a big smile. During my stay I met extraordinary volunteers full of enthusiasm, great moments, they made my stay memorable.

I love it and I extended my stay. If you want to be volunteer here you have to keep on mind this opportunity gives you two sides from a coin. From one side, you will have a LOT of flexibility to do your volunteer tasks & personal projects. But results and commitment are expected. From the other side, if you are not responsible, a neat person, not used to be organized and respectful this place is not for you . Daria is a busy woman and does not have time to babysit volunteers. Daria has a strong character. So be patient, assertive and open for communication. Thank you Daria!
