Giovanni (94) and Milena (89): my parents. In July 2017 Giovanni has a cardiac pressure crisis: he spends 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 the last 18 month I spent many days 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 have been really hard and strenuous and to be needful to someone is a huge responsibility, but it was been important to be there.
