Italian Village With No Access To The Web Recreates The Internet

Villagers in the remote Italian community of Civitacampomarano cut off from the internet have shown that life goes on - even when there is no internet. With only 400 mostly elderly people, Civitacampomarano is so remote that few are able to get online and mobile phones suffer from poor reception.

But an arts project has shown how digital innovations like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and eBay have actually existed for generations in the real world rather than online.
