21st century Caveman
This man isolated himself in a cave for 8 months. What he reveals on the inside is truly incredible.
Angelo Mastropietro almost single-handedly built himself a 21st century cave in a damp, dark abandoned space (700-Year-Old Cave) — a retreat to help him cope with a recent diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2007.
THE pressures of modern life mean that most of us have probably dreamt at one time or another of fleeing to the hills. But real-life caveman Angelo Mastropietro has made his hermit dream a reality – by spending over $230,000 turning a 700-year-old cave, carved into 250 million year old sandstone cliffs in the the Wyre Forest, into his dream home. The 38-year-old, originally from Worcestershire, was living a high-flying life as the head of a successful recruitment company in Australia when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The condition led to him being temporarily paralysed and inspired him to seek a simpler life.
