Cupramontana, capital of Verdicchio

Located in the heart of the Marche region at 505 meters above sea level, Cupramontana is the ideal place for a relaxing stay, good food and good wine, for an active, sporting or cultural holiday.

Tribù delle Noci Sonanti

What if we tell you that from end of the 80s there is someone living near our little village that has embraced the "living with nature" kind of life and never got rid of it? We are talking about Fabrizio who decided to buy a very old country house near Cupramontana and has lived without modern technologies (including running water and electricity) ever since. That is when he founded the “Tribù delle Noci Sonanti”. He has been open to welcome everyone that feels like expertimenting this simple life style, and among them there was Gessica, from whom Siddharta will be born some years later.

Is Siddharta a lucky boy? Should he live a “normal” life? What is normal and what is “too much” nowadays?

Some years ago a beautiful documentary tried to answer all these questions, following Fabrizio and Siddharta in their daily lives, and wondering if the tribù is where Sid should stay or if it is time for him to go back to the modern world.

In the documentary you can see our beloved green hills, the incredible peace and quietness of the nature just around the corner, and the beautiful old traditions that we often forget about. The Tribù has its own garden, eats only vegetarian meal (honey is the only food coming from animal sources), washes their laundry in the old way, and bakes bread. I personally find it a beautiful window into a life that we hardly think it could be possible nowadays.

The film is in Italian with English subtitles and it is available on demand on this link:

The world premiere was held at the Biografilm Festival – International Celebration of Lives in 2019 where it got the Hera Prize for New talents.The film was produced thanks to the funds for cultural activities of Le Marche Region.
