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.

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 :)

Gracias Ambrogio, Rosetta y a todos los amigos que nos hicieron pasar un excelente mes, todo el mundo fue súper amable con nosotros, nos hicieron sentir como en casa y en familia, más que agradecidos de poder haber compartido y conocido a gente tan buena, además de todo lo que aprendimos, en cuanto al idioma, a la cocina, pero más que nada sobre todo lo que es el trabajo con la tierra sin químicos, una lastima que el tiempo no haya ayudado mucho.
Los vamos a recordar siempre con mucho cariño.
Grazie mille!!!
