The father’s day 2020 is celebrated on March 19th. An occasion to celebrate fatherhood not so much as a “gender” emotion in a compulsory dualism, but more than anything else to tell a peculiar way of living the care often linked to stereotypes that , from the dads themselves, they want to be shot down. In these difficult days, where our dads are often the most at risk in the face of a health emergency, here are a series of sentences to be able to say “happy holidays” and express our affection to them. Far from any rhetoric.
