Giovanni (93) and Milena (87): my parents. In July 2017 Giovanni has a cardiac pressure crisis: he spend just a night at the hospital but he comes home very tired, without energy and no longer able to take care of his wife who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease. During almost two month I spent taking care of them for all their needs without I could neglect my job, I took several pictures to documenting that period of our life toghether again. Those days were really hard and strenuous, but I am proud for being the person they can count on
