Roccantica(RI) Lazio, Central Italy. Approximately 40 kilometers northeast of Rome, the area called Sabina, where Roccantica is located, is a part of the Apennine chain. The landscape is made of hills covered with olives, which rise towards steeper mountains, with extensive oak woods and small medieval villages, castles and monasteries. It is a landscape that has remained substantially unchanged over time and little affected by modern building development. Roccantica is located on the slopes of the "Pizzuto"mountain at 454 meters. of height. During their free time, volunteers could make some excursions (hiking, trekking, orienteering, night under the stars) – some workshops (cheese, soap making, hand made pasta, bread and pizza making, etc…) – sports (swimming pool, climbing, low ropes, yoga) – and milking with local farmer to learn to work with mules.
The Cognolo refuge is a mountain hosting place belonging the Local municipality of Casperia and managed by ALA association. The refuge was abandoned for 10 years until the organization ALA in collaboration with the work of local and international volunteers started its renovation in 2014. It remains a place of experimentation of innovative and ecological solution. The objectives of this project are to make citizens come closer to local flora and fauna and to promote sustainable and slow tourism in Sabina's mountains.
