My name is Francesca. My parents, both amateur photographers, Laura (Rieti, February 15th 1952) and Francesco (Catania, December 15th 1933) met in 1978 in a hospital, where my mother worked as a gynaecologist and my father was paying a visit to his friend, doctor Gennarini. I was born on March 10th 1985 in Ascoli Piceno, Italy. Nine years later, on June 12th 1994, after receiving my first communion I was at a restaurant celebrating with family and close friends when someone took this photograph of me using our camera. I remember I was annoyed for some reason before the shot, and maybe cried a little. The young woman on the left is my cousin Carmen, who studied foreign languages and German in particular. I now live in Ascoli Piceno with my mother, I am agnostic, and sometimes take photographs too.
