The watchword is solidarity. The AiutArci a Milano project unites associations, companies and various social realities during the crisis period linked to the spread of the Covid-19 virus. It gathers over 400 volunteers, between 18 and 45 years of age, trained and qualified, with the aim of helping the last and most fragile in this health and social emergency situation, bringing various types of aid and medical support to the people in needs.
The photos show some of the volunteers from Emergency and Arci in action to testify their precious work, especially in some of the most "difficult neighborhoods" in the city of Milano.
Many asked me during the reportage “why are you doing this? we are completely covered, you can't see anything, you don't even see if we are smiling ... "in the frenzy of the moment, not always I've had ways to respond, I will do it now; don't worry, we can see EVERYTHING, it's all in the eyes. So, look carefully at these guys, look at those eyes, because if they are the future, then, perhaps, there is still some hope.
