Workshop

Workshop at the ecological village of Granara (Parma, Italy)

Together with the students and the teachers of the Master “Saperi in Transizione” (organised by the Universities of Verona, Bologna and Parma) we visited the eco-village of Granara in the Italian Appenines, guided by one of its founders, Dario Sabbadini.

During the workshop, Dario accompanied us through a journey across different locations and recounted the genesis of the project and how it evolved over the years until now. Together with other inhabitants of the eco-village, we’ve been invited to attend group activities, discussions, and games. This allowed us to grasp, in a playful way, the challenges that accompany the creation and the development over time of a “real utopia” such as the eco-village of Granara.

Granara is the Italian case-study of my EU-funded Marie Curie research project EcoLabSS.
