Ho soggiornato alla Libera Università di Alcatraz lo scorso settembre durante il festival EcoFuturo. E' un luogo incredibile, immerso nella natura, dove in ogni angolo trovi un'opera d'arte o uno spunto creativo.
La cosa che mi ha colpito di più l'atmosfera di condivisione e amicizia che si crea tra tutti gli ospiti, Jacopo Fo e lo staff della struttura. Ho avuto la possibilità di conoscere persone splendide e persino di scambiare due chiacchiere con l'artista Paolo Rossi (che era ospite lì in quei giorni).
Ottimo il cibo biologico a buffet della cucina!

It has been noticed: Organic or Local Food, Green building, Energy saving lights.
