Italian agriturismo run by homeless shut down

Serravalle Pistoiese, November 29 - A Tuscan holiday farm estate run by homeless people has been shut down for failing to comply with basic regulations, Florence-based newspaper La Nazione reported Thursday. "None of the essential requirements have been met in so far as the only paperwork filed concerns the administration of food and drink to members of the association, not the offer of hospitality to other people," city council sources said. Other alleged irregularities included the structure's ability to receive guests, the sewage system and drinking-water supplies. The structure opened in June in an old farmhouse in the countryside between Serravalle and Montecatini in the province of Pistoia on the initiative of Wainer Molteni, president of the Milan-based association Clochard to the Rescue that runs the site. Molteni became destitute after his family business collapsed.
