Sketchbook: The Community Of Elves


Il Comunitario Di Elfi, The Community of Elves is an intentional community situated in the Pistoian mountains of Tuscany, Italy. It consists of a number of re-inhabited small villages linked by forest paths. The villages which were initially abandoned in the 1920s support a changing number of residents of over 150 people, who live a self governed, sustainable and mostly autonomous life style farming and living communally.

I travelled through Elfi for one month taken in with open hospitality. The living was hardworking, festive and sharing, the landscape breathing with life, the forest at night littered with the glow of fireflies and a sense of magic in the air.
