Stop con la moda.

La mia passione per le passerelle è iniziata quando avevo solo 12 anni e vidi per la prima volta una sfilata.

In quel momento speravo con tutto il cuore che un giorno anche io, un ragazzo di provincia, sarei potuto essere al posto di quei modelli.
L'anno dopo, a 13 anni, gli organizzatori dello stesso evento mi chiamarono e partecipai. Mi trovai benissimo e mi illusi che tutto il mondo della moda fosse straordinario come lo vedevo allora. Questo fu l'inizio effettivo della mia più grande passione.
Seguirono altre sfilate e servizi fotografici con fotografi ed aziende più o meno importanti.
A 15 anni provai ad entrare in un'agenzia di moda ma, oltre ad essere troppo costosa, mi umiliarono dicendomi che per diventare un modello sarei dovuto dimagrire almeno 10-15 chili; vorrei far notare che, in quel periodo, ero già abbastanza magro.
Successivamente ho ricevuto molte proposte lavorative come questa: "Sono il fotografo di questa azienda; un mio servizio fotografico costa circa €1000, ma se vieni a letto con me ti faccio tutto gratis".
Ovviamente, dato che rispetto me stesso e che i miei genitori mi hanno dato dei buoni principi morali, ho sempre rifiutato questo genere di proposte. Come può un uomo "maturo" avere la faccia tosta di fare queste proposte ad un ragazzino di 15-16 anni?

Ora faccio solo alcuni lavori nella mia zona e non penso più ad un possibilile lavoro a Milano o nelle più grandi capitali della moda, almeno non al prezzo del mio pudore.

Ho deciso di scrivere questo articolo/denuncia perchè sono arrivato ad un livello di esasperazione nei confronti di questa gente.
Mi scuso con tutte le brave persone con cui ho collaborato e mi sono trovato divinamente, e con tutti coloro che svolgono il loro lavoro con passione ed onestà.


My passion began when I was 12 and I saw my fist fashion show.
At that moment I hoped that one day also I, a country boy, would have been one of those models.
The following year, when I was 13, the organizers of the same event called me and I partecipated in.
I found myself perfectly and I deluded that fashion was extraordinary how I saw it at that time. this was the real beginning of my greatest passion.
This was followed by other fashion shows and photo shoots with photographers more or less important.
at age 15, I tried to get into a modeling agency, but it was too expensive and they told me that to become a model, I should lose weight at least 10-15 kilos; I would like to point out that, in that period, I was already quite thin.
Then I received many job offers as this: "I'm the photographer of thi company, usually one of my photo shoot costs e1000 but, if you come in bed with me, I'll do it all for free.
 Obviously, since I respect myself and my parents gave me some good morals, I always refused such proposal. How can a 2mature" man have the nerv to make these proposal to a boy of 15-16 years?

Now I do some work in my area and I don't think to a possible work in Milan or in others fashion capitals, at least not at the price of my shame.

I decided to write this article/denunciation because I arrived to a level of exasperation with these people.
I apologized with all the good people with whome I worked and I felt divinely, and with all thoso who do their work with passion and honesty.
