ITALIAN SABBATICAL

Wonder Grottole works on local and international connections. It believes in involving and connecting people and energies from all over the world, uniting them with the local community.

Therefore, in January 2019 and together with Airbnb the project Italian
Sabbatical (www.italiansabbatical.com) was launched. This project
offered the possibility for 5 people to live three months in the village
Grottole becoming volunteers for the project of revitalisation of the
historical centre. The news that 5 lucky volunteers were required quickly
spread around the world: In the first month 280,000 applications were
received and after a gruelling selection process, Darrell, Remo, Pablo,
Anne and Helena were chosen.

The 5 “italian sabbaticals”, as they are now called by the inhabitants,
arrived in Grottole at the beginning of June, welcomed by the whole
town in celebration, and will remain until the end of August. You can get
to met them closely by coming to Grottole. We are waiting for you.
