Down On The Short Road Near The Causeway

  • Photographer
    Vincenzo Parisi

This is the story of Rosa and Peppo, two farmers from Southern Italy who live in broad symbiosis with nature. In their small farmhouse in the middle of the mountains of Basilicata they have created an eco-sustainable, socially healthy, and authentic microcosm, where they feel at ease. Finding their personal solution that balances every aspect of life, enjoying the essential and with the concession of some small luxuries, they have entered tangibly and morally, even before most of the world, into the future.
