Zuzu

Lensed by Clara Macrì

“I’m Giulia but I almost always prefer ZUZU. I am a 24 year old cartoonist, illustrator and incurable playful person. I am a capricorn with gemini rising, so i want everyone to take me seriously except me. I hardly believe in anything, only in bonds and intuitions. Comics, like any other art form, serve to tell stories. And for me, telling stories means taking a few steps back from yourself, looking out. This operation allows me not to feel any shame, no sense of inadequacy even when I reveal confidential parts of myself. For this reason, getting naked has not cost me much effort, because my story, my life is like my notebooks, nobody will see them, but without it I would have nothing to tell. For almost all my life I have fought with a fact: I am a shameless person, who does not understand the sense of decency, of demeanor, of mystery as an end in itself. Since I allowed myself to admit this truth a knot of pain and frustration has melted away, and I’m happier.”

FANTAGIRL I AM THE WOMAN I AM is a project by Fantabody in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

The photographic project made in collaboration with Giustina Guerrieri, a young communication specialist who had always an interest in voicing real stories whilst exploring the boundaries of femininity.

An ode to the female body, regardless of its shape and skin colour. A research that promotes diversity as a starting point for addressing topics such as disability or immigration, which are approached with an inclusive, curious and prejudice-free attitude. Portrayed in her seductive uniqueness, every photographed subject has the opportunity to tell her story and reveal her nature with pride. An all-female collaboration where the protagonists are shot by selected female photographers and interviewed in the form of an intimate exchange of anecdotes and experiences.

The project is published monthly on vogue.it.
