THE PROJECT IN SUMMARY
#cicatriciebaci is a narrative and interactive project that tells stories of human scars; they are the past wounds, embroidered into your life, experiences that have shaped and empowered you. In sharing your scars and stories with the narrator, we embark on a visual journey of self-discovery and create a new story we can share with the world. The stories unfold together, while evoking emotions very personal to each storyteller.
We all have scars. They often remain voiceless and without recognition.
Every scar deserves a crown!
I believe we are everyday heroes, and we should be recognized as such.
This path of narrating and feeling narrated is a gift, and is a tool for creating awareness. An awareness that will be carried out with respect and discretion.
We hope to be able to count on your support, stimulate your thoughts and words, for talk to us and maybe to donate your story to this very noble cause.
“You give part of Your story to me as a present.
I rewrite Your story as an iconic framework.
The story retells itself in every human being that get in touch with it.
A sight that touch, hear and taste,
that bring awareness sharing people achievement.
Always Thank You All!"
TESTIMONIAL OF PARTICIPANTS
"The scar is created in the transition between wound and rebirth. And that is why it must be beautiful, because it is a sign of life." (BarbaMaura, Twitter)
The word scar seems to have the most ancient etymology of a Sanskrit term that means node.
A scar binds us to the past but also - as human beings, made of flesh and bones - to the rest of humanity.
It is the concrete sign of a possible resolution of a serious physical problem, but sometimes not so precise in being called a problem, as in the case of the Caesarean section. Today a good part of humanity leaves a scar in the body of its mother as a sign of its birth.
In my case the scar is tiny, a sign of two significant interventions in the heart, passing through the arteries. It is a new type of knot that binds me to the world, for example to that - for me very important - of medical and scientific research, capable of such progress, useful for many people. I am bound to this scar, more than others
