    Disability and happiness


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     giannantonio of Reggio Emilia, Italy, documents a day of reading, dancing and smiling faces at a support center catered to disabled young adults. "Public health in Italy is one of the cornerstones of our society."
    - stein0726, CNN iReport producer

    I took these pictures in a center of help and support for young people with severe disabilities in Reggio Emilia. The center is named “Centro Busetti” and is a public health structure. I was invited by the operators to document their spring festival. They are my friends and I accepted with pleasure. Parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, operators, they all celebrated with joy, with love and caring. The public health care for the disabled is one of the excellence of this town. This is achieved through a widespread system of public centers where young people and adults are welcomed and cared for with great professionalism and passion by highly skilled personnel. With these pictures I want to testify, and great was my emotional involvement, how can be easy to give and receive happiness, hope for the future.
