At her age some played with a chemistry set,
but Chiara played assistant at the olive oli mill.
When school was over in June
she would go to assist Grandpa Pietro
and her father
Antonio. She would sit in front of a typewriter,
with her feet not even touching the floor,
and would copy some fork documents.
Every Saturday she would receive ten thousand
Lira. Aged eleven, with her summer’s earnings,
Chiara bought her first camera and started
capturing all her best moments.
