Adolescence; desirable and desirous, menacing yet vulnerable, widely unpredictable and ultimately mysterious. Last summer I started to think about the project with my niece Ginevra and her friend Carolina. Recently I have been so attracted by this transitional stage of physical and mental human development. In many societies, adolescence was not recognized as a phase of life. Most societies simply distinguished between childhood and adulthood. Isn't it so wrong?!... the search for a unique social identity starts right here.
