Asking to several groups of citizens we realized they don’t completly agree with our idea of “barter”, even if they told us the opposite at the begining.
They showed us they were available, but when we asked for a completely participation they did a step off.
Also the association who was involved in that with a strong part on the process were unsure about the event. They gave us two reasons:
- 1st has been the very shirt time we had, but it was something we could completely fix with a lot of work;
- 2nd is the very strong and hard situations and relationships they have in Tottubella. They told us they tried a lot and hard to involve people over there and work with them in several project but at the end they were lazy and in bad relationships and not able to cooperate and work together. In some case they even blew the whistle on each other just for a cleaning session of the area and because some citizens decided to build up a small house for a statue at the entrance of the village.
According to this situation we decided to do a step back too and to not being involved in this legal stuff.
We had a new plan for our project is just under construction!!
