They are called Blue Zones-places in the world where people live longer and healthier than anywhere else on earth.
One of these just five in the world zones, has been identified in a particular area of Sardinia, which is home to most of the centenarians of the island, who are also amongst the oldest people in the world.
It happens within the small mountainous villages of Ogliastra and Barbagia, where the life flow seems to slow down, the air is fresh and unpolluted, and the daily meal includes always a glass of good red wine.
Located in very narrow, steep and picturesque villages that protect the zone from the corrosive effects of globalization, the beauty of this blue zone is not one or two big things but a costellation of little things that add up.
