Casa Verdi is a big, inspiring and creative house for travelers managed by a everchanging community of travelers, globetrotters, artists, nomads, backpackers, and entrepreneurs. In the house we live with the intention of pursuing a good and simple life: we welcome new people, cook, eat, clean, talk, work, exchange ideas, have meetups and events.... right by the city center, in Catania.
We try to approach our business like a family, influenced by the Italian culture for family driven enterprises and fusing it with elements of the co-living movement. We are convinced that the application of these ideas in different fields of economics could lead to simplifying processes and provide a new and improved work-life balance.
For Residents and travelers alike Casa Verdi offers a lifestyle that embraces participation and sharing of fundamental values as this allows a higher and more genuine value to be spontaneously created for all.
This perspective aims to hybrid gift economy & traditional economy.
We feel that the latter is merely an excuse to allow the former to trigger the unlimited value potential that results from meaningful human relations & interactions.
Our concept of Transculturality comes from an unfixed, everchanging and dynamic reality that may appear chaotic at a superficial glance. To us, Transculturality means simply sharing Human values, in a constant process of expanding our collective awareness. It also implies no stereotypes or prejudicial thinking so that spontaneous expression can manifest our individuality while we develop our inner self and our external environment.
To this end we love to mingle with people from different cultures.
Travelers seem to be subconsciously conscious of Transculturality as they have already acquired experience of this mixing of known and unknown, familiar and foreign. While travelling we tend to be in the most open mindset to share experiences, values and ideas with each other. Experiencing different countries/cultures has the effect of clearing up our role as representatives of a certain determined culture.
This can help to rediscover a certain joy in Being Together.
We therefore feel that travelling can trigger positive changes in our society. It could widen our point of view on life and social dynamics and teach us to "contaminate" each other with ideas and emotions; probably the most enriching experience we can possibly have with each other.
We believe that community living and Transculturality carry with them a crucial moment of transformation; a transition to a new economic thinking based on respect for the environment and driven by healthy human relations.
Co-housing, in particular, is our way to incorporate such a vision. Different objectives and philosophies merging together in a space allow us to experiment many different ways of connecting with others and approaching ourselves.
Casa Verdi therefore aims to attract those global-citizens and free thinkers who need a lively yet peaceful environment where they can confront and put into practice their ideas with the goal of positively impacting both local and transnational communities.
Casa Verdi dreams to become a social hub for this new ecosystem to flourish in Sicily.
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in his/her offer. From that moment, he/she has 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
