Il Solengo




A group of elders gathers in a hunting lodge and recalls the life of Mario “ de’ Marcella”, a man who lived in a cave over 60 years of his life. Why he chose to live a solitary existence is unknown. Perhaps it had something to do with a mysterious and tragic event of his childhood. Those who saw him while hunting referred to him as “il Solengo”, like the male boar who lives away from the pack.
