Long-life humans on the Alps
96 years of hard work and humility: this man is the product of natural selection that occurred in the Alpine villages until a few decades ago. His story is amazing how all the stories of people like him survived the hardships and the frost of a small alpine village.
Now he lives still making firewood, repairing and building up his tools and eating homegrown produce, driving the tractor and the first floor of his house is inhabited by chickens.
