Italy is the only Western European country without any formal marriage recognition for same-sex couples. Because of this, couples such as Italian lesbians Lorenza and Ilenia aren’t allowed to have their marriage legally recognized. For now, the women have decided instead to hire a photographer to document their love story as it stands now, fresh, passionate and as they describe it ordinary.

Underneath their exquisite images captured by Serena Cevenini, read Lorenza and Ilenia’s lovely essay about how they feel about each other.
