In this article you can see some photos of my early childhood. I have few fragmented memories of my first years of life, some of which have been awakened by discovering these old images, all taken by my parents.
I was born in Novara, an Italian city in the Po Valley. Our home was in a little town called, Cameri, a few kilometers outside Novara. In the first image you can see a picture of my father while feeding me with the baby bottle on the balcony of our house:
In the second picture you can see my first “pool”. I have no memory of these fragments of my life, but I like to review these photos.
I remember my parents’ bed and my little bed:
Here are some of my toys (of which I have no memories):
I remember the cars of my childhood, an old Fiat 500 and a Lancia Fulvia; here’s my mother on the Fiat:
And here I am “trying” to drive the Lancia!
I’ve always liked cakes…and I remember this!
I’ve never liked to sit down for a long time…
I’ve always liked being outdoors in parks, here in the company of my cousin.
Finally, I leave you with a photo of the ball game: I’ve always liked sports, although now I prefer the oval ball (rugby)!
All these photos were taken with an Agfa Optina IIS camera.
