Medieval village in Italy, on top of a calc-tuff hill, a stump of volcanic rock. 45 km from Rome. The village now hosts a very active community of over 100 artists, bohemians, and intellectuals who live and work there.
In the late ’60s and early ’70s, artists and bohemians began gravitating to the village, drawn by its rugged beauty and a mythical energy
“You could walk around here in your pajamas holding a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and no one is going to judge you because you’re not tied to the proper Italian way of doing things,” said a resident.
