Wow!! That was probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done in another country. Showed up at a winery my uncle found on google... to find it was someone’s house.... and as the owner was on his way out, he stopped to give us a full tour of the property and the winery! We thought we were just getting a tour, but arrived to a table his wife had setup for a tasting, complete with olive oil from the land and fresh baked bread!! Mind you.... he and his wife speak ZERO English, and my whole family speaks ZERO Italian... but collectively we managed to understand MOST of his tour! I am amazed by how well people can understand each other when they are present and have a desire to be in communication. I learned so much about his family, the wine, the estate, in just under an hour and had SUCH a magical and unexpected home visit 😄 All of this en route to shabbos dinner with the newlyweds! What a day so far.... •
Nel 1862 venne costituita a #Montalcino la società del mutuo soccorso, con lo scopo di aiutare i soci che si ammalavano ed avvicinare i giovani all'artigianato che pian piano stava scomparendo. Questo aiuto consisteva nel sostentamento di 50 centesimi al giorno qualora l'artigiano fosse malato o indisposto a lavorare. Qui vi presentiamo le immagini dello statuto della società del mutuo soccorso.
In 1862 in Montalcino the "società del mutuo soccorso" ( Company of mutual aid ) was created, with the purpose of helping the members that couldn't work and making artisanship more approachable to the younger generations. This help consisted in sustaining the sick members that couldn't work with 50 cents a day. Here are the images of the statute of the company.
