Angelo Ripoli played for about twenty years the work of the vegetable gardener of Prof. Ancel Keys and his wife Margaret Haney, Jeremiah Stamler and Martti Karvonen to Minelea, the small village of houses founded by Keys in Pioppi, in Cilento . His personal and constant attendance of the doctors of the Seven Countries Study, which led to the discovery of the benefits of diet and lifedata-style Mediterranean said, makes it one of the key witnesses for the preservation of the memory of the presence of Keys and his colleagues in Italy. Through the memories of Angelo Ripoli, which are complemented by those of Delia Morinelli, cook and housekeeper of the brim home, they can trace the uses, habits and attendance with the community of Pioppi by scientists. For the first time on video, Angelo Ripoli lets go to the memories and nostalgia of the past, remembering especially Ancel Keys with affection and devotion still unchanged.
