La Fattoria dell’Autosufficienza (The Self-Sufficiency Farm)

 is an ecological centre located on the Emilia-Romagna Apennines, on the edge of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park. It’s a wonderful place surrounded by a breath-taking landscape and uncontaminated nature.


Food Self-Sufficiency

We produce most of our own food required to run the Agritourism and reduced the use of fossil fuels to a minimum. We do not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides or any other product that cannot be produced naturally on the Farm.

Ecotourism and health 

Experience sleeping in a healthy, natural place, breathing clean air, drinking spring water, eating organic food, walking through the enchanting woods of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park, resting in a hammock beneath a big tree, having a massage at Bagno di Romagna thermal spa, harmonizing body, mind and spirit.

Ecological and Holistic education

We aim to build a sustainable human settlement, from one house to an entire city thanks to permaculture, transition towns, happy degrowth, organic agriculture, synergistic agriculture, green building, energy self-sufficiency, holistic techniques and organic food.

 Energy self-sufficiency and green building

Our goal is to go completely off-grid by using solar, water, wind and biomass energy. We build in a smart and ecological way, in order to reduce energy consumption to minimum terms, lower our environmental impact and host people in healthy and comfortable buildings.
