the village of eternity

What Italians really can do well

is to enjoy living.

There is a secret with Campodimele.

It’s hidden between the buildings of a tiny, nearly circular village.
Amidst its twelve towers. In the region of the natural preserve of the Monti Aurunci, situated about 130 km away from Rome on top of a steep hill.

Its nearly 650 inhabitants have a secret.

Their life is long and good.

It’s probably the healthy mountain air
or their way of living, which is in concord

with the rhythms of the earth.

It’s true that only they,
these centenarians of Campodimele,

do know the real secret.
