A heartbroken widower has been pictured taking a framed photo of his late wife to look at a sea view every day.
Giuseppe Giordano, 70, visits the same small beach in Gaeta, Italy taking the photo of Ida, who died from cancer seven years ago, with him. The particular beach used to be a place where the two of them would go as a young couple. The couple, who married in 1969, had been together for more than 50 years after meeting when they were 16 and had three children.
Giorgio Moffa, 54, the owner of a nearby pizzeria, first saw Giordano in early June and posted his photo on social media. Moffa said he was overwhelmed when he saw Giordano crying and wanted to talk to him and hear his story. He said: “I saw him and I was sure there was a great love story. Men like him do not exist anymore.” He added: “I absolutely understood his pain and was very sad for him. I have also lost my two little brothers and a son of five months, so I knew what he was going through.”
“I think that everyone in this world has at some point, lost someone special to them.” “So each of us has these moments of grief, it’s just that Giuseppe had the great courage and dignity to show it.”
