Cronaca di una vita semplice

Chronicle of a Simple and Fulfilling Life

Gianfranco is 36 years old and lives in Bardenghi, a mountain hamlet in the Valle Stura di Demonte in the province of Cuneo. To earn a living, he works in a factory in the city but does not want to leave his natal hamlet nor does he want to see other mountain hamlets like his disappear. Every day he takes care of his sheep, rabbits, geese and chickens, tends his potato patch, and harvests chestnuts in the fall. He tries to keep the woods clean and his hamlet alive in the hope that one day other families will return to the hamlet where a mountain community once lived year round.
