These photographs, taken by photographer Marzio Toniolo, document the final months with his grandfather during Italy's coronavirus lockdown.
Each time he went to a funeral, Gino Verani came away with a "santino," the traditional laminated card with a picture of the deceased on the front and a prayer on the back.
Over the years he would slip them into two small cardboard boxes in a drawer in the living room of his house in San Fiorano - a town in northern Italy that was at the epicenter of the country's coronavirus pandemic - along with his watch, an outdated cellphone and his keys.
Left: Gino lies in a bed set up in the living room of his home. Right: Blood from when Gino had fallen down the stairs is caught on Ines’ cardigan when she had tried to help him up. Marzio said that fortunately, Gino had gotten away with only a few small bruises from the fall.
But during the summer Verani fell twice. He no longer could manage the stairs so the family, including his wife Ines, 85, Toniolo's wife Chiara, 32, and his mother, set up an area on the ground floor where Verani could sleep in a single bed.
Almost the whole town turned out to see him. Each person received a "santino" with Verani's picture on it. Toniolo added one to the boxes in the living room drawer, retiring his grandfather's collection forever.
