The paper describes the story and the process of 8Pari, a project initiated in 2015 and has counted with 15 people in the team. Before that, the beneficiaries have had few possibilities to express and develop their skills in social and working environments, partially because of the existent vulnerabilities, not necessarily related to disabilities, but mainly because of the lack of environments able to recognize and develop their potential. It demonstrates how working in the vineyard and in the cellar can generate inclusion, activating an open and dynamic process. Workers of 8Pari have been directly involved in the process of collecting data before the actual writing of the article. In particular, three dimensions were discussed: historical, which describes the evolution of 8Pari’s identity and its interactions with the surrounding social and working environments; phenomenological, which explores the emotions and relationships between workers in their daily routine, as well as their interaction with the social environment; and finally, the prospective dimension, which reflects on how 8Pari could be implemented and integrated, considering its limits and trying to improve the traditional inclusion models, in order to bring at the center of the debate the dichotomy normality/disability.
