“Hi, my name is Francesco Giacalone, I’m 21 and I live in Como, Italy. Since I was a child, I’ve always loved make up, wear particular clothes and look myself at the mirror, pretending to be an artist.

However, as I grew up, I realized how difficult can be to show themselves in a society that is often bigoted so I can’t always be myself. As time went on, I realized that being myself shouldn’t have been a problem for others, I am the one who has to choose how to dress and how to behave. When I least expect, I met Lara Monachino graduated at Marangoni Institute Milan and it was right there that our aesthetics met up e and she made true one of my biggets dream.

I’m Francesco Giacalone and I feel free to dare. Everybody should fell free to dare, because it is not a sin.”
