Civitella is a space where the best parts of humanity are given a chance to flourish. There should be a program where world politicians and leaders can go and live there and be with us, and see how much can change for the better, in heart and mind, when a meal is shared and lives are opened in words, in shoulders rubbing against one another, nourishing and being nourished in turn. Grazie.
