A 32-year-old boy, who is not getting internet at home, is going to the online classes for 1.5 km.

Lockdown following the outbreak of coronavirus has changed our lives drastically. 12-year-old Julio Giovanni now has a place to study, and the view is enough to make you dream. Giovanni sits under a tree in the countryside, classes the mountains, vineyards and olive groves under one hot sun.

You wonder why he doesn't just take classes online from home? Sadly for him, he doesn't get any wifi signal there. The idyllic spot, about 1.5 km below the tree, is closest to where he receives a signal. His family cottage in the Tuscan neighborhood has no internet access. “The days I received lessons when I came home with a table, a stool and my bag of tablets and all the books I needed,” Reuters told Giulio.

His mother took him to a place just outside the small Tuscan town of Scansano. He doesn't even have a cell phone signal. “So, to participate in his lessons, we have to come here where we can at least get the Internet,” his mother explained. “We've got everything set up and we're ready for our lessons,” Giulio said in his first year of secondary school. “I like being in school because I can at least be there with my friends. In the meantime, his mother is taking legal action against the phone company because it took so long to fix her internet connection.
