Quanto Ti Vuoi Bene?
Quanto ti vuoi bene? gives a glimpse into the minds of Italian teenagers through a sea of portraits with reflections on self-esteem and their own personal challenges navigating adolescence. They are the Italian "Women of Tomorrow". An artistic/cultural journey, created by the Australian photographer Jacqui James, with over 90 photographs illustrates the remarkable awareness today’s teens have of their own strengths and weaknesses, candidly revealing their ever changing self-identity.
The exhibition is more than a simple portrait gallery. Quanto Ti Vuoi Bene? is a sociological and iconographic survey addressing Italian girls aged 9 to 16 years and aims to investigate the young girls’ self-esteem and the role of technology in their lifestyle, as a means of communication, expression and relationship. Conceived by Jacqui James and promoted by futuro@lfemminile – a social responsibility project created by Microsoft and Acer – in collaboration with Dove, the initiative included two stages: first, the girls participated in an online poll (http://quantotivuoibene.msn.it/) which, through the analysis of the responses conducted by the psychologist Maria Rita Parsi, traces different character profiles by age groups; in a second phase, the most significant responses were selected by the photographer, who then travelled to different regions to meet the protagonists in person and be photographed.
Jacqui James (www.jacquijames.com) is a journalist and photographer. She has a special interest in telling real people’s stories, finding their individuality, thus transforming her art into a social service.
The exhibition Quanto ti vuoi bene? was organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Milan with the support of the Family, School and Welfare Department under the patronage of the Ministry of Youth and the Ministry for Equal Opportunities.
