Feminine Plural, project devised by Simona Filippini in conjunction with Eva Tomei and Sveva Bellucci
Text by Igiaba Scego and Francesca Orsi
It’s my body and I’ll photograph it myself.
We prepared a photo set at the Casa Internazionale delle Donne in Rome and, after having posted an invitation on the Internet, 75 women of all ages photographed each other, freely choosing which part of their bodies to show and whether or not to make themselves recognizable.
The “feminine plural” was at last joyfully expressed in all its nuances.
The project was funded by the Commissione delle Elette (committee of women councillors) and the Cultural Policies Department of the Province of Rome.
