My project is about the true story of a guy that I don’t want to forget and about an important theme: we are what we live. In Calabria, in the early twentieth century, a child with disability that does not allow him to maintain an upright posture, was locked up (almost hidden) in a chicken coop with chickens. He identified its functions and duties with the cock. Welcomed later in a psychiatric hospital, he discovered the hard truth that he was not an animal.
