We love the morning, in the hot days of late summer, look carefully to the south from the bedroom window, towards the Apennines, you can see groups of deer grazing in the fields behind the house. We are surprised every time, as we, "urban beings" we have lost the ability to realize that the nature around us, despite everything, is more alive than ever ....

The inn Woodly, our home, is an ancient stone building spread over five levels following the slope of the hill; over the centuries, they have been added portions, however, the ancient Tower century, still stands in the old village and you can enjoy an enchanting landscape, up to Mount Cimone. Beyond the courtyard are our laboratory, our office and warehouse spaces created by retrieving the old stable and barn with walls entirely covered by lush climbing roses and jasmine.


The hills surrounding Parma, have treasure trove of architectural and culinary culture also. The best ham was born here, where the sea blows and stones have preserved stories of princesses and knights.

Colorno: elegant and monumental architecture, with over 400 rooms, courtyards and patios, surrounded by a landscaped garden with magnificent parterre. Once inhabited by the Sanseverino, the Farnese, the Bourbon and Marie Louise of Austria.

The day I went to see the old house for sale in the hills of Parma, we could not imagine that this action would cause a chain of events that brings us here, now.

First we created a company, Woodly, "craft high-tech, environmentally friendly production of furniture and home furnishings zero impact", designing and manufacturing objects with renewable resources, biodegradable, non-toxic; then we have restored parts of our house and so was born The Locanda shares the same name, in order to offer to others the opportunity to share this beautiful area away from the noise and contamination.


At the same time we set up a cultural association "The courts of Faviano" that was created to promote cultural activities in our small village, we have already started with three workshops dedicated to wild plants / herbs / flowers and edible, where you learn to recognize, preserve and cook, more details in the page of Locanda workshops.
