Nonna (Grandma), I Had to Go

Both of my nonnas are called Tina (though we call one Titi’). Tina in Italian tends to be an abbreviation of several names. In my case, one nonna’s full name is “Annunziata”, and the other’s “Concetta”. Which funny enough, I had never realised mean “annunciation” and “conception”, roughly.

One of them lives in Italy, the other moved as a kid, with her parents to Australia.

We are a group of science-inspired creators of exciting content that speaks of science and cares for the soul.
