The dream of the Latin poet Horace - a villa or small or large, where there was a garden, a source of living water, and forest - takes shape around the farmhouse Tragneij, near Sordevolo, the green heart of Biellese. Quiet king of this minimal Eden is Ugo, an old craftsman who chose solitude of slow time of nature for the winter of his life. The love for the mountains, a symbiotic devotion with the lush and enigmatic landscape of this hidden part of Piedmont, represent the world of Ugo, an icon of dignity based on respect of the universe.
