  • Third Place ($500 Cash Award) / Teens Category

Taught by: Giulia Bucciarelli, Davide Barbini and Ashish Kumar Patel

Studied at: Angel Academy of Art, Florence

Created by the student at 19 years old

On March 9th, 2020 the government of Italy declared a national lockdown. I was stuck in Florence and there was no way out. At the time I thought my school which had closed one week before would reopen again after a bit. We students, constantly, week after week, had the hope that everything would go back to normal soon so we could continue our studies, but we all were mistaken. Eight very long weeks passed before we were allowed to go outside. The slight hope that school would reopen again had already died. But I still had to wait another 48 days until I was able to find a way back home. I have to thank Giovanna and Piero who took care of me and I am so grateful for everything they have done for me in these difficult times. Without them, I couldn’t have dealt with the situation.
