Protagonists of the exhibition, the boys of Anffas Lucca portrayed in the "shots" a moment before entering the scene. The make-up, the costumes, but above all the emotion of going on stage and showing their talent as actors and communicators.
"Vis-à-vis", the exhibition, is a face-to-face journey with disability, an intense game of mirrors between those who look and those who accept being watched, to overcome the prejudices that often characterize the perception of disability and reach to recognize themselves as similar and participate in the same adventure.
The work of Giammattei, a photographic journey between acting and entertainment, disguise and self-awareness, is the result of a long experience in the field of disability. For over ten years, in fact, the photographer has frequented the centers of Anffas Lucca where he succeeded in educating the boys to their own image, winning the shame, the fear and the incredulity that an external eye aroused in them.
