On her birthday, Nonna Nina was cured of the virus. She turned 102, and on that same day, her great-grandson, two-year-old Leonardo, also recovered.
They were the last two members of a large family to still be infected with the virus. 11 out of 14 family members fell ill to COVID-19; one of them died. Little Leonardo had a high fever for five days but has recovered.
Originally from Bergamo, Nina arrived in Valle d’Aosta in 1946. She worked for the post office, delivering mail door to door on her bicycle. She has six children, eight grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren, including Leonardo.
