Il Popolo degli Elfi, Italy
Founded in 1980 | Residents: 200
Il Popolo degli Elfi was born in 1980, when a group of four people tired from city life decided to move to a small abandoned village only accessible by foot in the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano. Eventually the community grew to more than 200 members spread throughout 30 living areas in the valley, occupying abandoned buildings that were transformed into comfortable houses according to their simple lifestyle.
