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.
