How do you study when there's no internet?
12-year-old Giulio Giovannini's house has a bad connection
and their phone line has been down for five months
With schools closed during lockdown
no internet means no online lessons
but luckily he has found a solution
(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) 12-YEAR-OLD ITALIAN BOY, GIULIO GIOVANNINI, AT HIS TABLE ON TOP OF HILL AS HE STUDIES, SAYING:
"On the days when I have lessons I bring from home a table, a stool and my bag with the tablet and all the books that I need and then mum and I come up here in the car. We set everything up and we are ready for our lessons."
Giulio uses his mom's phone signal as a router
which allows him get on with his studies
He sits alone in his mask surrounded by trees
but being out in nature means
the occasional countryside distraction
(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) 12-YEAR-OLD ITALIAN BOY, GIULIO GIOVANNINI, SAYING:
"Most of the time I can concentrate well, sometimes it happens that I am talking and you can hear the bleating of a goat behind me. That has happened."
