Generation Gap

The life of young Italian shepherdess

Diamante is a young Italian from Tuscany. Before 2015 she was on track to become a medieval archaeologist. However, eight years later, she has now a goat farm. A business and career she has chosen herself and built overtime as she did not inherit neither the farm nor the goats. For our monthly series on the ‘Generation Gap’, VD went to her farm so she can explain her daily life and philosophy. And for Diamente “being a shepherdess is not a job for old people, it is a job for young minds.” Across Europe, many young Europeans are following her path, are adopting slower lifestyle and are more and more interested into traditional agriculture and farming.
