Penelope is still waiting for...


I take this photo on August 2010 during my holidays in Salento, a region of Puglia in the South Est of Italy. The title of my photo is " Penelope is still waiting for..." Why Penelope? Because Penelope is one of the characters of Odyssey. She waits Ulysses and the chair beside her is for her husband, but wee can see thet it is empty and so now she is old and alone. This photo wants to explain the sense of loneliness and the sense of isolation from the rest of the world of the old person. We don't forget aged person, because one day We will be old too. Photographer: Sara Mazzolini, Italy
