Marco Hong

When I met Marco to photograph him regarding my project on the Italian-Chinese community in Prato, he asked me if I wanted a glass of water. I said yes and he gave me a cup with the Internazionale Football Club logo. He apologized saying that it was his brother’s football team…

I asked him what team he was fan of and he said: “I am a Fiorentina (the Florence football team) supporter!”

I told him that Fiorentina was my team too and that it was great to know that he was supporting the same team…

“There are not many Fiorentina supporters in the Chinese community young generation. Most of the people I know are Juventus, Milan, Inter fans, because they are strong teams. It is ‘easy’ to support them. I don’t care because Fiorentina is the football team of my region!”
