Former teacher Mauro Morandi is bidding farewell to his tiny hut on the Isle of Budelli after local authorities repeatedly threatened him with eviction.
He's become known as Italy's Robinson Crusoe after spending more than 30 years as the only resident of the idyllic island.
While the national park authorities have accused Morandi of altering the property on the islet, he has pulled all stops to reclaim his home, The Guardian reports. But lately, he gave up his fight and has decided to relocate to a small apartment in nearby La Maddalena. However, he still dreams to turn the island into what has been described as a hub for environmental education.
