When we began, Village.Works was little more than an idea with a name. Our Italian partners took on mobilizing the village and their services while we in the U.S. focused on building a brand, capturing and creating content, building business systems and marketing tools.

Our first trips were scheduled for 2020 but (as you can imagine) Coronavirus had other plans. Italy is still shut down for international travel, but Village.Works has every intention of resuming services ASAP.

Enriching guests with all-inclusive & authentically local cultural experiences.

Village.Works is the anti-tourbus, helping hidden-gems to quietly live on and prosper—preserving and protecting ancient cultural traditions and one-of-a-kind environments.
Enliven guests; revitalize villages.

Guests, not tourists.

Your rustic revival.

Fantasy leads to travel;

travel leads to adventure;
adventure leads to self-actualization.

My challenge was to capture and communicate the wild, rustic magic of Tuscia and its people; a lens into a more harmonious way of life.

The Tuscia locals inspire us to live happier, kinder, and more intentional lives—and we want to share that.

To honor and support the locals and their businesses, we tell their stories with motion portraits & videos, photographs, blog posts, and social media.
