About Francesco Boldrini

Born in the town of Milan, I studied engineering with a focus on the landscape planning and land protection. I worked as a costal engineer (projecting harbours, costal defence etc.) but even if I was loving my job and the study of the sea movements and the winds, I decided to change my life completely and start a new life in the country side, where I could finally express my desire of making things with my hands. Since 2005 I live in Appennino close to Florence where I started the project called Tertulia.

I met permaculture when I had to design a building reconstruction and started to look for straw bale experts. After this I experienced a new group - partecipated way of design and met the ethics and permaculture principles which were very close to my personal ideas. Then we proposed a first PDC in Tertulia in 2012 and since then every year we organize a new PDC.

I attended to a PDC in Tertulia in 2013 and then I partecipated to intensive workshop on Food Forest and Social Permaculture with Helder Valente.
Tertulia in a project where sustainable way of life is explored in different directions, both agriculture, social relationship, solidarity, people hosting.
