Description

Santina and Giuseppina Foglia waving from the balcony. 1966. Josephine and Santina Leaf (Santina and Giuseppina Foglia), known as the Twin Leaf (Turin, 1958), were two Siamese twins. Their basins were united in the sacral bone and also had dell 'sectors urinary tract and' reproductive system in common. On 10 May 1965, at the age of 7 years, they were separated with a difficult surgical operation (extraordinary for the time) to 'Regina Margherita Hospital in Turin. The surgery, the first of that kind carried out successfully in Europe, was the work of a team of 24 doctors including surgeons and anesthetists, guided each by Professor Luigi Solerio and the other by Professor Enrico Ciocatto. After separating the twins had to get used to new conditions, learning to walk on two legs, after years of moving to the position where they were forced from having joined basin. The two women continued to live in Grazzano Badoglio : one works as a bank committed and the other, who married, became a mother in 1992.
