Letter from a Fukushima mother

Giorno di sole. Fabrice de Nola, 2011

In May 2011, the New York Times reporter Hiroko Tabuchi was in Fukushima to report on a story about radiation levels at local schools.
On that occasion he met Tomoko Hatsuzawa, a mother of two in Fukushima City, which gave her a letter.
Ms. Tabuchi has shared the letter in English here.

We have translated the letter in Italian.
So the Italian artist Fabrice de Nola has embedded the letter in his painting Giorno di sole (Sunny day), inspired from a portion of a photo by Carlos Barria.

From 17 December 2011 to 17 January 2012, the painting was displayed at the exhibition Sweet Sheets IV in Palermo, Italy.
