La Casa Felice
Design Research & Participatory Design
Agitu Idea Gudeta was a farmer, Sociologist and the founder of La Capra Felice. She bought an abandoned building right next to her cheese shop in Frassilongo. We ask the question: How could this space be revitalized and reused? How could it look like and how could it have a positive impact on the local community? Together with Agitu we imagined a new place of living and working in harmony with nature: The vision of La Casa Felice was born.
La Casa Felice is a space to experience mindful life in connection with nature. You can visit it, stay for some days or also work in the house. It is a place to re-gain knowledge, explore sustainable lifestyles and practically work with animals, plants and organic products in the natural landscape of Valle dei Mocheni.
The project includes the development and iniciation of a participatory workshop, a financing method based on the concept of Eco-Social Economics and a holistic concept for the space.
