This long term and ongoing project tells about a family living with Autism Spectrum Disease(ASD). Emilia and Francesco , after having tried for a child for years, 
 they resorted successfully to artificial insemination (ICSI) and had twins: Luisa and Riccardo. Only nine months after their birth, Emilia became spontaneously pregnant with their third child, Michele.
 At two and a half years, Riccardo and Luisa were diagnosed with ASD. Unfortunately, just a year later, Michele was diagnosed with the same. This new photos show the daily life of this family
