Simplicity is the word characterising the summer games, taking place in Rio de Janeiro.

It is my eighth summer photographing the games and every single time it is an incredible emotion. Being in front of thousands of athletes during the opening ceremony reminds me how everyone's dreams are important and even with all the difficulties, they can be realised. The games represent that dream and the peak of a career. The best way to live through them is the celebration of every single discipline, of athletic excellence and of felt emotions, separating their magnificence from everyday life.

The opening ceremony has been itself dedicated to simplicity, in order to prove to the world how - even with all the differences that characterise us - we are not as different as it sometimes seems, because the emotions which move us all are the same.
