“Angelo and Angela have lived together in South-Eastern Sicily with their daughters Hybla, Lua and Siria, since 2005.
They chose this place to build their home and their life. A simple life.
They chose to be careful about the food they eat and the education they give their children who were all born at home.
With the same convictions, they use alternative energy sources (such as wind turbines and solar panels) that allow them to live independently of a mains electricity supply. They only buy organic and locally grown food.
Getting to know them on a daily basis turned into a genuine co-existence, and I was immersed in their strong dedication to this life project and their daily commitment to it.
The awareness of living a revolution is transformed into deeds and actions of hard work.”
