Couple marry at home for the elderly after having been together for 54 years

An 85-year-old woman and an 82-year-old man have finally got married after having been together for 54 years. The man has been suffering from Parkinson’s Disease for 18 years, and has now found himself confined to a wheelchair.

Italo Talluto had to leave everything, including his home, and moved into a home for the elderly in Milan. He seems to have been allergic to marriage, but when he found himself separated from Maddalena Castelli, he ended up marrying her at the home for the elderly.

In an interview on an Italian paper, Maddalena stated that they had always been together, living in the same home, travelling together, and going out in the company of their friends.

Maddalena added that Italo was in a hurry to tie the knot, before leaving this world because of Parkinson’s.

Italo wanted to celebrate their marriage with a reception at the home for the elderly where he is now living. Guests included numerous relatives, friends, and medical personnel and  staff at the home for the elderly.

Although they always spent their time together, Italo and Maddalena are now living separate lives -he at the home for the elderly and Maddalena at their home, but she visits her husband every day, and he wishes to return to their home. His wish, however, is unlikely to be granted because of his medical situation.
