Dear friend and dear friend,

we invite you to experience the exciting and innovative experience of the Centro San Cresci project with us.

The philosophy behind this project is considered by us creators, a group of friends voted for energy and environmental sustainability, agricultural and livestock subsistence at 0 Km, respect for the environment and quality of life, a very model current. We are certain that our individual frequencies have allowed our spontaneous aggregation, finding ourselves in agreement in anticipating the times, in wanting to realize this humanitarian project. Today we give the opportunity to participate in the project to other multi-generational groups of families, singles and friends who wish to live in shared and cohousing private homes and elective neighborhoods, in an agricultural context, located in San Cresci of Borgo San Lorenzo. A paradise just 35 km away. north of Florence, in the Mugello area of Tuscany.
The principle on which philosophy is based is as simple as it is revolutionary, reiterating the use of verbs such as "reduce, reuse and recycle". It is not a sterile regret of the past, but it is a convinced adherence to values such as study, competence, merit and seriousness, today sacrificed to the manic dedication of "followers" and "likes".

Furthermore, our philosophy brings together three important concepts:


"3R: reduce, reuse, recycle"

our sentence
