Throughout the year many church-linked traditions can be traced to ancient pagan rites.


January: At this time of the year when the trees are without leaves we can appreciate their “architectural lines” and design and admire the elaborate filigree made by the ice. “Heavy snows bring bountiful harvests”. Find out the real meaning of the Christmas presents bought by the Befana (a kindly old hag who delivers presents to children on the night before Epiphany)… We build a bonfire and then set fire to it. Saint Anthony Abate’s legacy and the blessing of livestock.

一月:在每一年的????,??木?都?有?子,我?可以欣?它?美?的“建筑??”和冰雪??的美感。 “??的大雪意味??年的丰收”。?找出Befana(主??前一天晚上?孩子?送?物的好心女巫)??的圣??物的真正意?… 我?堆起篝火。圣安?尼阿巴特的??和牲畜?的祝福。

February: Origins of the farmer’s carnival. Pruning finishes and sowing starts. Learn how to build a birds’ nests. The hazelnut tree is the first to flower thus helping the bees to survive in these final stages of winter.


March: Search for the first buds, flowers and herbs. Bees begin their work. Eggs – the symbol of Spring and Easter. Discover brooding fowl and chicken, geese, duck and turkeys’ eggs. They roam freely amongst the vines, behind the bushes and amongst the fruit trees or hide behind the hay and straw bales. Put an egg close to your ear and listen – you might be able to hear a tiny beak trying to break its way through into the world. Learn the difference between the different fowls’ eggs and whether they can be left to hatch or are only good for cooking. Have fun coloring eggs with vegetable dyes. Walk through the countryside and discover wild ducks’, coots’, black birds’ and jackdaws’ nests. We also search for and collect the first herbs of the season – learn what they can be used for. Saint Joseph’s Day – Father’s Day.

三月:?找和??第一枝嫩芽,早?的花和香草。蜜蜂?始了它?的工作。?蛋 - 春天和复活?的象征。?????和火?的蛋?有孵蛋的家禽?。看它?在藤蔓灌木和果??自由漫步,或是藏在干草或稻草包之?。拿一?蛋放在你耳?仔?听 - 你也?能听到一?微小的生命正在??破?而出?到??世界。??不同种?的蛋, ???分它?是否可以孵化出幼?或是只能用?做?。?手用植物染料?蛋?上色。探索?村田野, ??野?,黑?和寒?的巢。我?也采集春天??芽的香草?材 - 你可以???它?的用途。圣?瑟夫日 - 父??。

June: The kiwi blooms. The hay is cut. We prepare walnut liqueur using walnuts gathered on Saint John’s day.


July: You can participate in the wheat harvesting (certain days only) and see an old-fashioned tractor at work. Explore the stream and learn how to fish frogs with a “bow”… and then set them free (learn about the importance of frogs in the ecosystem).


August: Walk through the countryside, along the river banks and discover traditional buildings (rural architecture). See the harvest and preparation of hemp.


September: Corn and grape festivals. In the olden days the grape harvest was a symbol of happiness and friendship. Press grapes with us in the traditional way and after pressing we build a grate to dry the grapes for Christmas. Bring boots on this course. With the grape juice we will make puddings, donughts and possibly bread using whole grapes. We also collect corn cobs and prepare the corn for animal feed and turn it into flour to make polenta.

9: 玉米和葡萄的季?。在以前,葡萄的收??和友?的象征。???的方式?制葡萄然后制做一?篦?圣??晾晒葡萄干?加???需要靴子。我??葡萄汁做布丁donughts, 用整?的葡萄做面包。我??收割玉米,并制做用?做玉米粥玉米粉,剩下的?做??

October: The end of the grape and corn harvests and the kiwi harvest begins. After carrying out all the different stages of preparation of the land we see if it is the right time to plant wheat. Learn the different types of planting. Examine the different types of land. Play with the “vital” mud. Delight in the colours and smells of the forest – dry leaves which rustle and crackle under our feet, the smell of damp earth and moss, the busy bugs, hazelnuts and chestnuts to eat – a rich season. Learn how to make hazelnut cream, butter, cheese and ricotta. Try our roast chestnuts.

10葡萄和玉米??, ?猴桃丰收?始。翻整?土地之后?再?定是否要播种小?。你可以?了解不同?型的种植方式, 辨?不同?型的土地。 至?重要的”泥

Last Sunday of October: Kiwi festival. Pick your own kiwi and make your annual provision.
During this season cereals are sown and from now until the end of Spring the farmer must wait patiently for the harvest entrusting its outcome to the saints, the “gods”
and the spirits of the underworld who inhabit the earth along with the seeds. There are lots of ways to distract bad spirits – dressing up in black, which is the colour of the dark winter which cometh; orange – the colour of the leaves and pumpkins that we use to make masks and violet which is the traditional colour of hell.

十月的最后一?星期日:?猴桃?。?采摘?于你自己的?猴桃吧。在??季?, ?民?种下谷物,直到春天收?之前, 他?必?耐心等待并向圣人和天神?祈?丰收。?散坏?魂的方法有很多- 穿?黑色的服?,?是?是象征?暗的冬天的?色; 橙色 - 代表秋?和南瓜的?色; 紫色-?是象征地?的??色彩

Stimulate the 5 senses in the farm




in our vacation houses


Welcome to the Farms "The Blade of Grass"


  • Sunday 18th December 2011: Organic lunch at Monte Ceva with the possibility of buying our products and our fresh meat. ON RESERVATION: +39 328.3779435 -

The philosophy of the Company :


- Ethics… Responsible citizens… for a sustainable world

Biodiversity: a value to be preserves. Let's play at sustainable tourists


- Scientists on the Farm: from theory to practice, we arrange and plan experiences of physical and natural mathematical sciences with the teachers. Levers, honeycomb hexagons, phyllotaxis…

- Imagination and Beauty in touch with nature… art with nature…

大自然的美和想象力 自然??

- Biblical plants on the Farm…

Proposals for cooperation with Nature:

- Project "The Field": the opposite of total control

- "Gardens in Movement" restores Nature's possibility of expressing herself according to her inner order. Hurray for Wandering Plants!


- "The Planetary Garden": who is the Gardener? A Planetary Citizen.

- “?是植物的花??是?丁

Our farms "Il Filo d'Erba" are open to whoever is curious "by Nature".

我?的??"Il Filo d'Erba向所有?自然感到好奇的人??放。

Latins translated with "Natura" (contraction of "Nascitura", who's going to be born) the Greek term Physis, F?s??, which contains the indo-european root "bhu - be" related to the root "bha -light".


Φυσις is the Whole generating itself to come to life; it contains in itself its origins, "being illuminated", it is visible and understandable.
Φυσις(自然)孕育生?生命的"整体",它也孕育了自身的起源,被照亮之后,生命?得可以看?, 可以理解了

We all are part of the Φυσις, of the Whole: our actions influence and modify the Φυσις, and anything happening in the Φυσις influences and modifies in turn ourselves.

我?都是Φυσις整体之中的成?, 我?的行?活?影?改??Φυσις(自然),Φυσις(自然)中?生的所有事情也反??影?和改??我?人?。

The Whole, the Φυσις, evolves following a proper internal order, resulting from the interactions among all its constituents.
The effects of our behavior fall back on ourselves. We need to re-approach the
Φυσις which encloses us, AS it is necessary to regain an authentic relationship with beings and things with whom we share our life.
I felt the need to take a path of discreet observation of the vegetal and animal world.

Φυσις(自然)遵循?自身?部的?展??, 自然?部的各?成?相互影?而?生不同的?果

Moving forward from this knowledge I hope a more genuine relationship could ensue, in harmony and balanced with the Whole of which we are part.


To this extent many areas in our Farms "Il Filo d'Erba" are laboratories purposing to gain knowledge of the
Φυσις, "disorderly" spaces, where the Φυσις takes care of itself, where anything might happen.

因此我?的"Il Filo d'Erba"??在?多地方正是用?更好的理解Φυσις的???地, "零?"的空?中,植物和?物??其自然的生?,?Φυσις?照?自己,任何神奇的事情都有可能?生

Many are the animals living freely, both domestics and wild, and many are the "vagrant" types of grass, planets of a system continuously moving towards an equilibrium, a harmony to which we are bound to participate not in antagonism but as part of a synergic competition.
??中的?多?物, 不管是家禽?是野生?物都自由的放?而且不同种?的草也可以任意生??里的生?系?逐??向平衡,慢慢?到一种?同??而非人??抗的和?

I have a dream:


From nature to people without mediation, free to interpretation.

?自然到人?, ?有?行的改造而是自然的?渡

Within the two farms of ‘Il filo d’erba’ (blade of grass) there is the forthcoming of life. “Where everything is yet to happen or germinate, telling all to listen and not to miss a breath or whisper of nature. When nature is left unaltered it creates areas of paradise. ‘Paradise’ comes from the Persian word ‘Parsi’ meaning garden or park.” –From the project: ‘The game tent’, Cisgiordania – Israel

在‘Il filo d’erba’草之???庄的????里, 生命正在悄悄孕育。“?里的一切都即?复?萌?,?仔??听,不要??大自然的一?呼吸或??耳?。?自然不被加工或是改?, 它??造出一片天堂。“天堂”???是?自波斯文的Parsi”, 是美?花?的意思.” –引用自: ‘The game tent’, Cisgiordania – 以色列

Ancient people called grape vines “cosmic trees” because it was said they embraced the sky. Even now, for those who live in the country side and who are endowed with a vivid imagination it is easy to see the truth behind this poetic fantasy. A sight most of us have lost touch with. At the edge of the regional park of ‘Euganean hills’, 13ms high at the top of a chestnut tree on Monte Ceva you’ll find the tips of the vines from the neighboring vineyard. These vines, free to roam as they please, thread their way through the trees like a cobweb enclosing the sky. This magic can also be admired among the elms and willows in Altaura in the lower hills of Padova.

古人??葡萄藤?宇宙之?,因?它?承接?抱了天空。即使是?在,?于那些生活在?村和那些具有丰富想象力的人???, 看到?充??情?意的幻想背后的真理并不是件?事。??的景象我?太多人已?不常?到了。在Monte Ceva “Euganean山丘公?的?,你???13米高的板栗?上?????近的葡萄酒庄蔓延??的葡萄藤。?些藤蔓,自由的探索蔓延,攀爬上?木, 枝?交?, 伸展向天空。?种神奇的景象,也可以在帕多瓦Altaura的低矮丘陵之?, 生生不息自由繁衍的榆?和柳?那里看到

What a nice, natural garden. The seeds of last year’s radishes fallen, unplanned and are free to reproduce in the orchard. We didn’t sow the radishes, we didn’t water them, we didn’t tend to them and other herbs have grown amongst them. It is wonderful to see nature’s ability to regenerate itself!


What a joy it was for the children one Easter to see two lambs, free range on the farm, come into the dining room through the open door to wish all a Happy Easter. It was a very special Easter!

有一年, ??上的复活?真的相?特?能在复活?那天看到?只??上自由放?的小羊?打?的??到餐?里?, 祝福大家复活?快?, ?孩子???是多么有趣的事情

There was a lot of emotion on the farm one day when we all saw the mother peacock unexpectedly come into view with her two newborn chicks after 28 days of hiding, (most likely in the vineyard) waiting for her eggs to hatch!!!


At Altaura there is the “Lovers Avenue”. Here we can admire and learn about the spontaneous shapes of plants and trees, grown out of seeds sewn into the ground by me, without pruning or grafting. These plants are left to do as they wish and can indulge themselves as much as they like. This freedom and capacity to grow has lead me to call this place ‘Lovers Avenue’. To love means to open your heart, body and soul to another, embracing his own and widening your dimension and letting others grow with you. In this way, we, like the plants, can find our own space and way of being, growing and finding new paths as we please…we do not interfere with the plants … “che di natura è frutto ogni vostra vaghezza!” – Giacomo Leopard- All is left natural, liberal, without direction or limitations.

Altaura有一?“?的大道” 。 在?里,我?可以欣?到植物和?木在自然??下任意生?的形?多年前我?种子繁育了?些?,并?有修剪或嫁接。?些植物被允?任意的生?, ?意的伸展枝?。?种自由和成?的能力?我???地方取名叫做?的大道。?,就是打?你的心,身体和?魂,?大你的心胸?抱?方,并?他用自己的方式与你一起成?。如果我?也像??,就可以和植物一?,找到适?我?自己的生活方式和空?,?找到新的成?的路?......我?不干与植物的生?......“ che di natura è frutto ogni vostra vaghezza! 那自然是你的所有含糊不清的?果- Giacomo Leopard 意思是, 所有的全部都?其自然,自由,?有方向的限制

Naturally, without mediation, the small clods of earth with brass and flowers become our precious ornaments for the table.


In Altaura there is a six metre tall Pear tree, perhaps even taller, which by the end of August is full of big ripe pears. It is wonderful to see such a sight! Even the pears reach all the way to the top!

Altaura有一棵六米甚至更高的梨?,每年的八月底部都??出??的大梨,?底端一直?到最?端. 能看到如此景象?在是很美妙!

Do you know the etymology of the word ‘fegato’ (Italian for Liver)? Generally the names of organs in the body are derived from either Greek or Latin routes. ‘Fegato’ however does not appear to derive from the Latin: jecur or the Greek: epar. An assumption could be made that the word ‘fegato’ (liver) is borrowed from the Latin word ficatus (meaning fig). Farmers used to feed geese with figs to swell their livers for paté. In this case it would seem that farming traditions were stronger in the naming of the organ.

你知不知道一?(意大利?‘肝’)的?源?一般??, 意大利?里身体各器官的名?都?自希腊文或拉丁文。但是‘fegato’一?并不是?自拉丁?的jecur或是希腊文的 epar。有一?猜想是‘fegato’???是?拉丁文ficatus(?花果), 因?用?花果?喂?可以增大它?的肝?, ?民?好用?做?肝?。在?种情?下,????就?器官的命名?生了很大的影?

Yesterday I saw a flock of geese greedily eating Figs from a tree. The Fig tree unaltered (not pruned) had figs at a low enough level for the geese to eat them directly from the trees. I thought how funny and appropriate to name the liver ‘fegato’, from the fig ‘ficatus’.

昨天...我看到一群大?正在?婪地吃?上的?花果。未修剪的?花果?的果子?的很低, 可以?大?在地上直接吃到。我想, 用?花果‘ficatus’?命名肝?‘fegato’ 是多么有趣啊

I hope that by visiting the farms of ‘Il filo d’erba’, where nature explodes, you take away an experience of wonder and enjoyment, with a fuller heart and new ideas. I wish to share this with all because I believe we need a bit of poetry and child-like wonder in our lives and I am convinced that those that visit these farms will leave with a greater appreciation for nature and have a greater inclination to defend it when it comes up in issues of biodiversity, sustainability and accountability. I believe one of the tasks of those fortunate enough to have a strip of nature is to share it with others and to love and respect it just the way it is..

我希望,通???生?自然的Il filo d’erba’??,你可以收?愉?的体?,更充?的?心和新的思路?意。我希望与大家分享?些,因?我相信我?的生活中需要一??意和孩子气,我也深信到??我???的人??更加理解和欣?自然,更懂得生物多?性,可持??展和社??任的重要性。我想那些有幸有自然精神的人的任?之一便是与他人分享如何??并尊重自然本?的方式......

Casale di Scodosia ?庄

is an ancient farmland with 26 hectares of land cultivated according to the method of organic agriculture which offers to visitors big and small the possibility to discover the traditional life of the farmer, the fields, and the animals of the farm. The creeks and hedges create a healthy and luxuriant vegetative zone which is an oasis for wildlife. A forest of ash, oak, walnut, hazelnut, and paulownie cover half of the farm’s acreage. An entire hectare is cultivated solely for the support of wild animals.


Wheat, corn, soy, and medicinal herbs are cultivated on twelve hectares. Sheep find refuge under the kiwi trees, where geese and chickens nest as well. The donkeys and cows prefer the shade of the paulownie trees, and the rabbits have their pens out in the open air. We can observe from the safety of a special screened shed the queen bee, her drones, and the worker bees; and even taste the honey directly from the hive. Baby donkeys, cows, rabbits, piglets, chicks, lambs, and goat kids are friendly to pet and hold in your arms. Or, learn the art of weaving on an ancient loom using the traditional tools.


The Farm also offers studies in greater depth and laboratories on specific topics such as the biodiversity and the safeguard of seeds; the well-being of animals and coop construction also for chickens, turkeys, and guinea fowl; biotechnology and the biomass boiler; and all about the insects that populate an organic farm.

As for hospitality, besides the outdoors space there are the rustic annexes of the seventeenth-century Villa Correr: the restored old stalls; the grand portico housing all the harvest tools; and the ex-“essicatoi”, buildings where massive tobacco bales were once dried, which have been recently restored with all the modern conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay, including lodging with private bathrooms and a banquet room for meetings and events all decorated with simple and familiar taste.
