Nowadays most people are afraid of aging but at the same time we want to live as long as possible. We are seeking for the ideal way of life, some even for infinite existence. The women who I met in the hinterland of Sardinia are home to a so-called Blue Zone, a region of the world, where people live much longer than average. The seniors live independent in their own home and nutrition plays a key-role. „È Cosi la Vita“, which translates into „That‘s what life is like“, illustrates my perspective of an existence close to nature and the mysticism surrounding the long lives of these islanders.
