Ciao a tutti in tutto il mondo,

A delayed thank you to all who responded to my Italy inquiry. I did manage
to see one straw bale house / permaculture center under construction. A
great experience. I will report more about this interesting building, its
exceptional owner / builder, and a few other things about straw bale in
Italy when I get a chance to breathe.

For now, thank you Valentina (grazie!), Art, Chug, and David, and mostly to
Stefano Soldati, who is a (mostly silent) GSBN member who was very helpful
connecting me locally.

Fino ad allora . . .

Martino Martello  (Martin Hammer)

PS ­ Bruce, I have good info for you and Sarah for your September trip.
