Mr. Giovanni Repetto, 86 years old, has always been a farmer on the Appennini mountains, in Capanne di Marcarolo, a few houses on the border beetween Piemonte and Liguria, Northern Italy.
He lives alone with his his sister Maria, 88 years old, without television and cellphone, even because there is no signal up there.
He’s one of the last to resist at the hard life of montain farmers.
Last week the wolves killed 7 of his chicken outside the house.
He has a dog, 7 goats and 2 sheeps mainly to keep company to him.
He had a tuff life that he does not recommend to anyone.
