Aspesi denounces cyber-bullying
Henrietta Harris, Fallen, 2014
Text Angelo Ruggeri
I also was a victim of bullying. When I was a child and an adult. When it happened, there were no ad hoc regulations for fragile children like me. The solution was turning to silence, to your mother support, to tears, to music. I still remember my bullies. Today they say hello to me as if they were my friends. True friends. I smile. I managed to go on, to fight against my fears and to destroy bad intentions. I often stop and chat with them, we remember that old times, but only positive moments.
There are kids who were not able to overcome all this. Because they were shy, too sensitive. They impressed negative memories in their soul, they never cancelled them. What makes me sad the most – I tell you from the bottom of my heart– are not today’s bullies, modern and 2.0. Many experts are already caring for them today. I am deeply irritated by those who minimize the bullies ‘acts, turning them into superficial moments, children’s matters, not to be taken seriously. Through the years, due to this attitude the bullies have crossed the border.
To come close to the bullying and cyber-bullying topics, Aspesi has made a selection of limited edition T-shirts with a message: Aspesi’s Kinky Atoms with the writing #StopBullying. The T-shirts, worn by the authors of Natale con gli autori, who have posed for the famous photographer Malena Mazza, will be on sale exclusively at the Aspesi store, 13 via Montenapoleone in Milan. The proceeds of the one hundred and twenty limited edition T-shirts will go to Casa Pediatrica Fatebenefratelli.
