Last hope

It's almost 20 days Italy is in lockdown, I mean the whole country.Everybody has to give a contribution and while that of some people is their own life or risking it, that of people like me is staying home. They say having a routine is fundamental, I say giving this routine a sense is the... Continue Reading →

It’s up to you
