SERGIO IL PATRIARCA ONLUS NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION
THE EARTH GIVING AND SHARING : A HUMANITARIAN EXPERIENCE
The earth that unites people, creeds and races. An attempt to bring different cultures and beliefs closer together in order to go beyond, towards a freer and clearer vision of brotherhood. To cultivate the earth is first of all non-violence and the ability to listen to her message through the plants and the animals, free from any form of chemical poisoning.
Our way of looking at the Foundation is simple and direct, just as the life of country people has always been. We want to host, free of charge, elderly people in need of rest and love, for their well-being in the fields and the woods. We want to invite youngsters in search of their identity, so that they can find themselves and grow through the message of nature. They will be our guests for a month in original country houses, in the middle of vineyards, olive trees and woods, on the hill overlooking San Gimignano, in the heart of Tuscany. During their stay they will learn our way of life and our daily work, and they will find themselves part of the big family that lives and works at Montenidoli. They will have the chance to meet all the friends of Montenidoli: geologists, biologists, agronomists, vine growers, wine personalities.
