The house

This rural house was rebuilt after the devastating earthquake of 1976, respecting the traditional lines of the Friuli courts. The earthquake did not prevent the Fabbro family, present in this place since the nineteenth century, to live here in continuity with the traditions; they did not disregard them, but they pursued the agricultural activity and the ancient carpenter skills of their ancestors with dignity.

The “cjase di Gjelmo da Gea” breathes the labours of Luciana and Rino, miraculously escaped the earthquake; the eighteenth-century well – source of common water – preserves the voices of numerous children who inhabited these spaces, reduced and then extinguished by emigration.

We want to share these spaces, loaded with books and objects of family crafts, not with tourists, but with travelers, because “travel” and “book” have the same nature.

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page” (St Augustine)
