I snapped this shot on my way back from a long walk in San Rocco, the small Tuscan village where my husband and I currently live. Of the gender role playing I’ve witnessed in Italy, I’m most surprised and delighted by the number of grandfathers out and about having fun with their grandchildren. Without a doubt it helps keep grandpas young and gives added stability and love to the grand-kids.

Note: My dear JPG friends please check out my latest essay. I'm hoping this is the kind of gender role story JPG is looking for. Thanks!

In the On the Streets of Italy photo essay.
