I am involved in agriculture, art, and some of the many activities we run here at the castle and at the farm Maso Pacomio.
In our materialistic world, we increasingly forget that we owe our existence as people and communities to the lives and work of the people who came before us. Here at Castel Campo, this becomes clear, not just for us, as we live here, but it seems to resonate with visitors to these rooms and the garden, or people who take part in workshops or summer camps at Maso Pacomio.
I love showing visitors the skills and techniques used to build structures like the castle and the farm centuries ago by people just like us, who made up for what they lacked in modern equipment with energy and ingenuity. Here you can clearly see how the past and the community can show us the way forward. We can take pride in being a link in that chain, learning that intuition counts and humility is crucial.
Every castle has surprises like this in store for visitors, just like ancient villages and old, unaltered farmhouses. Vital ingredients for improving and better understanding the way we live today.
