There is plenty of firewood around. You can bring your own food or buy it at the grocery store close by. This area of Italy is very cheap. The food can be bought all together as it happened in the last edition. Last year we also made delicious bread and cooked amazing food in the wood-burning oven. What to bring: You will definitely need a sleeping bag a flash light. For the tent, you can also arrange to share it with other participants. This was the case in the past years. Also last year several people did not use tents at all. They slept on the meadow, on hammocks on the terrace. In the summer it is warm even at night. The stars will be your roof, what else do you need ! Facilities: We built very beautiful bamboo shack showers. The water is still not heated but it gets quite warm in the summer. But who needs hot shower in the summer anyway.We have latrines and compost toilets. We do not have electricity. But we have a generator in case we need some electricity for a short time.We have well water for the shower and very good tap water from the mountains for drinking.Wood-burning oven, wood-burning stove, barbecue area and plenty of firewood are also at our disposal.
