Giovanni Pigliapochi is a doctor and a photographer in his mid thirties. In 2019 he suddenly developed a very high fever, was very weak, lost over 10 kilos in a few days: shortly afterwards, he received an HIV diagnosis.

U=U stands for undetectable = untransmittable, but also means: you are you, still the same person. The pill he takes every night before going to sleep, which ensures that the virus does not replicate in his body is constantly repeated in the book, alongside a series of collages; a technique that allows him to create imaginary worlds,
let his mind run free and express his emotions.
