THE MAGIC WORLD OF CA SHIN: HEART, NATURE, HAPPINESS AND HEALTY FO

At Cavaioni Park, ten minutes from the center of Bologna, there is Ca Shin, a place for adults and children, designed and managed by Cooperativa Le-Ali.

Cà Shin is a place  where you can find refreshment, a ibrary,  a teatrOrto,  a gym,  woods and  big garden. Preservation, protection, cultural and environmental promotion are the key words. A place that combines healthy food, friendly environment and a particular attention to art, childhood and ecology.
Cà Shin is a space where you can  take time out and be more in tune with the rhythms of nature, a place  where rediscover the pleasure of chatting ….without  hurry.

In Cà Shin you can stop for a drink, a snack, but there is also a small refreshment,  with a simple and healthy menu, an important part of the message  that the Cooperative wants to express: the need of a change in the daily lives and also in eating habits of everybody.
For this reason, to the restaurant are linked many activities for adults and children as the laboratory of bread with sourdough, cooking classes and vegan and vegetarian  dinners.

The restaurant offers simple food from the folk tradition. The pasta is all homemade and strictly pulled by hand. There is great attention to the choice of ingredients, the vegetables  come from the garden are  moved from a local farmer, there is therefore zero km as honey and oil.

A frame of everything there is TeO ‘, an organic and biodynamic vegetable garden, where horticultural classes are held for adults and children, theater performances and concerts are  made between tomatoes, zucchini and summer salads, and Teo’ becomes an intimate and magical palce where you can have a romantic dinner by candlelight.

“CA SHIN IS THE HOME OF EVERYBODY AND OPENED TO EVERYBODY”

During the summer time,  Ca Shin offers a variety of outdoor activities. Opening the season is the regular appointment in June with “energy in the hills,” a week full of artistic and cultural  events which has as  frame the park of Villa Silvetta and as protagonists artists and personalities sensitive to environmental issues.

Energy in the Hills  started in 2011 to give  a new life to the 38-acre park surrounding the villa, transforming it , through numerous appointments (over 90), in a place of art and magic. An event where art and nature link in the name of environmental sustainability and for improving the  quality of life.

In the woods, among trees, far from the heat of the city, many concerts, performances, installations, movies, readings, workshops, meetings and performances involve adults and children. An event created for  engaging  the entire city and its citizens.

There are also a lot of  sporting activities as judo, karate, giocodanza, skating courses designed for smaller, numerous hands-on workshops, tastings, meetings and show of many kinds.

With it the Cooperativa Le-Ali is committed to restructure within 2 year the building.  Since its birth, the Cooperativa deals and cares about sustainability: Villa Silvetta has been restored following the principles of bio-architecture, using solar panels and photovoltaic cells. It  has a rainwater collection system and a heating system fueled by wood floor (agreement with the municipality of bologna for the maintenance of the wood), using radiant heaters and insulation of the ceiling is made of old wool sweaters. The Cooperativa Le-Ali has also been recovered and restored old wooden tables, chairs .
