Situated in the province of Perugia in Umbria, Nortosce sits at an altitude of 900 metres.

Despite the only two in the entire town, Carilli and Nobili are wearing masks all the time and following all possible safety measures.

Carilli said that he was ?dead scared of the virus. He told CNN, If I get sick, I’m on my own, who would look after me? I’m old, but I want to keep living here looking after my sheep, vines, beehives and orchard. Hunting truffles and mushrooms. I enjoy my life.


Nobili said, Wearing a mask and respecting social distancing is not just for health reasons. It’s not something ‘bad’ or ‘good’. If there are rules, you need to abide by them for your own sake and other people’s. It’s a matter of principle.


CNN reported, When the pair meet for an espresso at Carilli’s house, they sit at a two-meter-long table, one at each end. They also make sure to maintain social distancing during their regular walks to an ancient Roman stone fountain to collect fresh spring water.


The government in Italy has made wearing of masks ‘ in outdoors and indoor spaces’ compulsory.
