Facebook and Tinder are real-life entities in this small Italian village

GoogleBiancoshockThe original ‘let me Google that for you.’

For most people, it’s hard to imagine a day without Facebook, Google, or email.

But that’s normal for the some 400 people who live in Civitacampomarano, a secluded Italian village where internet and cell phone access is rare.

Life is a bit slower, but residents have always been able to connect through IRL face time. These residents inspired street artist Biancoshock to create his latest project, where he posted logos of modern apps on their predecessors in the village.

Take a look at the project, called “Web 0.0.”

Biancoshock installed 12 pieces throughout the town in the Campobasso province.

The cheeky installations highlight the pleasure of interacting in real time. Our addiction to our phones can often make us forget 'the true value of spending time with people in reality,' Biancoshock says.

Even without the internet, the people of Civitacampomarano seem to be connecting just fine.
