An Italian family's year of living amid COVID
A year ago, Marzio Toniolo led a simple life as a primary school teacher, husband and father in the small northern Italian town of San Fiorano, until their town and a cluster of others became the first "red zone" outside China to be put under lockdown in February 2020.

Two-year-old Bianca Toniolo holds hands with her great-grandfather, Gino Verani, 87, in a rare moment of tenderness, as they watch the news on television during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, at home in San Fiorano, Italy, March 4, 2020. Toniolo said that although both Verani and Bianca loved each other very much, Verani struggled to respect the rules on social distancing which sometimes irritated Bianca, but, it was also just as difficult to make her understand her great-grandfather's difficulties.

Gino Verani, 87, observes a collection of "santino" cards, a traditional laminated card with a picture of a deceased person on the front and a prayer on the back, given to visitors at funerals, that Verani had collected every time he went to a funeral of friends, relatives or acquaintances over the years, in the living room of his home in San Fiorano, Italy, March 14, 2020. Marzio Toniolo, Verani's grandson, who took the photo, said that there were around 150 cards that Verani had collected and that particularly towards the end of Verani's life, he would use the cards as an activity to keep Verani's memory trained saying 'I pointed to the pictures and asked him if he remembered the names. The answers were almost always correct, despite the difficulties associated with memory,' he said. REUTERS/MarzioToniolo SEARCH "TONIOLO GRANDFATHER" FOR THIS STORY.

Marzio Toniolo, Verani's grandson, who took the photo, said that in moments of particular tiredness, Verani would ask his wife to go to bed very early in the evening. This, however, Toniolo said, created temporal imbalances in him and sent him into total confusion. So Toniolo's grandmother did everything to keep him awake and he, in his own way, reacted by pretending to be desperate. REUTERS/Marzio Toniolo SEARCH "TONIOLO GRANDFATHER" FOR THIS STORY.

Toniolo has been documenting his family's story since lockdown began for them weeks before the rest of the country. On June 3, Italy allowed free movement across the country, so the family took the first seven-hour ferry from Livorno, Tuscany to Olbia, Sardinia in the early hours of the morning to travel to see their relatives. There were few people on the ferry, and Toniolo said no checks were made upon arrival in Sardinia. Picture taken June 3, 2020. REUTERS/Marzio Toniolo
