These are homes of elderly people who have certain cultural, political and moral values to transmit, potentially embedded in their home environment, therefore making them parental figures of reference. Values that we can’t afford to lose, as well as them. I have involved in this narrative people who are part of the collective memory of Italian society, having joined the partisan movement, feminism, culture and politics, the fight for civil and women’s rights, the fight against the mafia, but that are also part of my personal memory. It is a meditation to pass on to future generations. A social family album where spaces, objects, images and texts related to these people are communicating on his or her behalf. Between the lines lies the relationship with my father, encapsulated in his final illness, which, like many parental relationships, was part success, part failure.
