The site presents wwoof in this way: "WWOOF organisations connect people who want to live and learn on organic farms and smallholdings with people who are looking for volunteer help."
After the subscription I've contacted a small farm in Tuscany, near Grosseto, to start my first experience!
And I can say: It was really enthusiastic!
The family was composed by two parents and three childrens which have fantastic names: Maya, Blu and Lumi!
They don't have electricity (and you discover that REALLY you don't need electricity), to illuminate the evening they have solar lamps available, but they've potable water.
Three donkeys, ten goats occupy a lot of their day time, for almost two hour a day one or more of the family gaze the little herd around the beautiful Tuscany land.
I love water the vegetable garden, because it's an activity near to the meditation and it's fantastic create a clod and see this little seeds grow..
I suggest to everyone to take some times and try to live near nature and its power..

I saw the Asinelli Tower, spent beautiful days eating fantastic icecream (the best in italy) and cooking our homemade Tortellini (what a challenge create the right shape!), thanks to a colleague's Marco that loaned him this object: http://www.tm9000.ch/shop/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/STENDIPASTA_SM_2_4e55f80f16b36.jpg.
A particular instrument to stretch the mixture.
A day trip in Ferrara has allowed us to meet Luis, a great urban sketcher.
Now he is traveling around the world and draw the Life :)

What a lovely time!
We visit two museum: a little called Museo del Bigallo with some ancient picture dated 1300-1400 (in there you can find also the most ancient depiction about Florence), and La Specola Museum.
The second one contains not only zoological subjects, but also a collection of anatomical waxes!!
An evening we had gone in La citè to see a tribal concert, what a wonderful place! I suggest to slip down to spend a different after-dinner!
Thanks to Andres and Silvia for the hospitality!

In bus, people talking with other people, with themselves, rambling about their life, about some mistery, that figure to me like small cross sections: parent's directives, cooking instructions, work problems, "where is the russian embassy?"
