Welcome to Viverealtrimenti home page. Viverealtrimenti is an Italian neologism meaning: living in another manner. Viverealtrimenti, as a publishing and networking project, has been active in Italy for more than ten years. We have published books about communal living, alternative and sustainable lifestyles, religion and spirituality. We have created a good network involving individuals, intentional-ecological and religious communities, cultural and voluntary associations and NGOs mostly in Italy, the UK and India. At the moment this English section of our website is still in progress and we cannot offer much contents. We are working hard to develop a couple of crucial publishing projects and to share some interesting information in our blog. In this "mature phase" of our project, we are mostly focusing on religion and spirituality and one purpose of this website is to promote what we can consider interesting literature on these topics. It is available in our catalogue, displayed below.
