The Wider Image: No energy worries for Italy's 'harmonious walnut tribe'
Fabrizio Cardinali, 72, combs his beard in the mirror, at his home in the woods of the small town of Cupramontana, Ancona, Marche, Italy, December 11, 2022. Cardinali, founder of La Tribu delle Noci Sonanti (Tribe of Harmonious Walnuts), has been living alongside nature without gas and electricity for 36 years. "I was not interested in being part of the world as it was going. So I left everything - family, university, friends, the sports team, and set off in a completely different direction," he said. "Giving something up is not masochistic. You give something up to obtain something else that is more important." REUTERS/Yara Nardi SEARCH "NARDI CRISIS ITALY" FOR THIS STORY.
