Simone. Rome, Italy

Simone works as a postman, therefore falls into the category of “essential workers”.

“For me the lockdown when I asked my employer for proper protective devices, it continued with the concrete doubt of being infectious, until I got separated from my family, all going through – every single morning – a suspended and surreal city. Now those, like me, who have not been able to stop, it’s becoming a routine, however unacceptable.”
