In 1997 Giuseppe ‘Libero’ Spagnuolo decided to live as a hermit in Roscigno Vecchia, a town in the Cilento area, abandoned since the early 20th century. Libero is the only inhabitant. His contacts with the outside world are the postcards sent to him by sporadic visitors and a musician who plays the accordion.
