Public Story
Family Quarantine
Like any photographer, I immediately felt the need to tell about this pandemic caused by Covid-19. In the first days on the deserted streets of the center I met many colleagues, Milan was in the spotlight of the whole world, after Wuhan the virus had moved here.

But the silence that enveloped us made me want to lay my gaze within the home walls, where I could tell the quarantine in a more personal way.
Life had disappeared from the streets, but not for this had ceased to exist.

Everything continued to take place inside the home: school, work, sports activities, social relationships with relatives and friends; thanks to the applications of our smartphones.

I told my family during 2 long months of isolation, my wife Paola, who continued to work from home in smart working mode, my 10 year old son Mario who is in fifth grade, and my 9 year old daughter Margherita who is third year.
