Most of the photos in our photo restoration series are black and white, but how could we take the colors out of this one? The colors are joyful! They celebrate life and family, and Gianna is the Pro-Life Saint!

Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962) was a pediatrician and mother of four. Complications in her fourth pregnancy forced her to choose between having an operation that would save her life but risk the life of her unborn child, or foregoing the operation and risk her own life. With Christlike love, she chose the latter, and ended up sacrificing herself for her child.

This picture was taken in the Alps while the family was on vacation. We think it's from the late summer of 1958. We haven't confirmed it, but we think that is her first child on her right, Pierluigi, born in November 1956 (working on Gianna's sunglasses), and her second child on her left, Maria Zita, born in December 1957 (who has her eyes on those sunglasses). We love children and happy families.

Other sellers offer this image, but they don't offer a crisp, lifelike restoration. We use cutting edge AI technology to bring you this fresh view of our friend. As with all of our photo restorations, we hope that this helps you feel closer to our Saint, even to the point of friendship, and that in turn lets you be closer to our greatest friend, Jesus.

!!!!! IMPORTANT!!!! IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border around the image. About 1/2" on 5x7, 1.3" on 8.5x11, 1.6" on 11x14 and larger. It gives the print a finished look when framed without a matt.

- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Acid Free paper
- Cardboard backer (except for 16x20, which is shipped in a tube)
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!

The original photo is out of copyright, as Italian snapshots are only in copyright for 20 years per Italian copyright law. That's why it is widely offered by other shops. But our restoration efforts, which are very time-consuming, are copyright.
