“Take care of me” is a photojournalistic project created in 2021 and later published on Life Gate.

The photos were taken by Carlo Cozzoli who worked with the journalist Lavinia Nocelli. Together they listened to dozens of experiences entering the intimacy of the stories of doctors, managers and patients.
