    The project was born in May 2018, when the author decided to tell the story of Francesco, a twenty-six-year-old Italian queer from Sesto Fiorentino, a small town just outside Florence, where he still lives.What emerges from the narrative is the path Francesco faced in living his identity as an expression of normality, in a society that is not yet ready to accept all of the different facets of a human being.The boy’s life is characterized by the symbiotic relationship with his sister Eleonora, who together with him undertook a path of physical, emotional and creative transformation: both of them underwent surgery to fight obesity; Eleonora supports her brother in the daily affirmation of her identity and together they have formed a band, “Glitter Diamonds”. The first piece performed by the duo is titled “DIVA”.Photography represents the trait d’union that allows the viewer to focus on the experience and the metamorphosis of the protagonist. The experience of Francesco, thanks to the comparison with his family and with the author, becomes a means to convey the courage to show oneself as one is.An account of a personal experience opens up to the broader themes of acceptance of diversity and the recognition of the right to be oneself.

    “DOES” is an acronym formulated by the American researcher, psychotherapist Elein aaron in 2011 and stands for:

    .

    D (depth = processing depth)

    O (overstimulation =)

    E (emphasis-empathy)

    S (subtitles = sensitivity to details).

    .

    It was created to indicate the main characteristics of HSPs (High Sensitive Persons) which, according to the latest research, appear to be between 15% -30% of the population of each country, against 80% -85% who do not have it.

    Always considered simply “excessively” sensitive people, having a more sensitive nervous system is not only completely normal, but it has immense potential in itself, rarely able to be expressed.

    In our culture, this personality trait is not considered ideal, on the contrary: parents and teachers, even with the best intentions, have tried to help “overcome” this way of behaving and perceiving the world, as if it were a defect.

    Research has shown that these personalities have a high potential as leaders and that, through the knowledge of their tools that from limits can become precious allies, they can represent key figures in this delicate historical moment, where empathy towards others it is ostracized as much as possible, and the alienation dictated by strong individualism creates masses of personalities that are ever more perennially dissatisfied and unhappy.

    The British parliament has for some years begun to make funds available for psychologists from all over the world to allow them to identify these personalities among the prominent ones in the country and create the new leaders of tomorrow.

    To go to schools and train teachers to support, identify and develop HSPs from childhood.

    Dark, Muzlim.

    In front of a desk, almost in a whisper, we decided for a car, a week in early May, light luggage, and the North of France.

    The last, or perhaps the first, card, to stop that infinite ballet on the spot.

    From that darkness [re] a journey is born that has had everything and nothing of travel. Development in its progress, reversal in its discovery, [de] growth in its return.

    Leading colors, lawns that begin in an ocean, lowered shutters, empty parking lots, footsteps that echo.

    Panic that holds the breath but opens the eyes wide. .

    Darkness that gives way to a jump.

    And a jump what else is not if not to embrace that darkness instead of being embraced?

    Today: Muzlim.

    And a jump what else is not if not to embrace that darkness instead of being embraced?
