Mission statement

The strength and the particularity that unites all our projects is the optimization of the social capital and the enhancement of the human resources present in the village.


Nothing extraneous is imposed in the daily simplicity of the life of the inhabitants of our communities, precisely in order not to create any new need.


If sustainable development must not create any kind of extraneous dependence, but must concentrate on maximizing the resources already present, that is the social and human capital, the only true and inexhaustible force of any rural reality.
