Villa Vianci's Farm, when tradition meets innovation
Not just agriculture, but an experience rooted in the history of our family, that has been working this land for over a hundred years with respect and care
Fattoria SpecchioRiflesso is the educational farm of Villa Vianci, dedicated to providing children and other visitors with a rich and varied experience, emphasizing the senses and the realization that we are deeply connected to the natural world.
We wish to cultivate a sense of wonder and respect for the diversity of life in the world around us, through intimate and joyful hands-on experiences in the outdoors.
We will engage the children through direct contact with plants and animals to enhance their experience.
As psychoterapist, Tommaso is specialized in animal assisted therapy (AAT) which incorporate animals into the mental health and psychotherapeutic treatment of people, the equine-facilitated psychotherapy (EFP) refers specifically to donkeys.
Having an animal present in the therapy process, provides the individual with a sense of comfort not equaled in traditional therapy.
Fattoria SpecchioRiflesso currently has donkeys and goats.
The choice of animal will depend on the individual's presenting issues and preferences and can change throughout the child’s therapy.
In addition to animal assisted therapy, we also utilize: garden therapy, bibliotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and technics from cognitive behavioral therapy.
