“The great Sire himself 

No easy road to husbandry assigned, 

And first was he by human skill to rouse 

The slumbering glebe, whetting the minds of men 

With care on care, nor suffering realm of his 

In drowsy sloth to stagnate.”

(Virgil, The Georgics)

SYNOPSIS Peppino lives in the Italian countryside, between Puglia and Basilicata, Altamura and Matera. His days and his works are dedicated to the land and animals. The time of its existence follows the movement of the sky and the wind. We don’t need to know much about him: that little or that much – which is everyone’s life – is written in his eyes.
