Sangiovanni’s career exploded thanks to the twentieth edition of Amici. The young singer from Vicenza, runner-up in this year’s edition of Maria De Filippi’s talent show, is currently at the top of the charts with his self-titled album and summer single, Malibu.
The singer, also known for his colorful look, for his pink-tinged outfits and nail polish, told about an unpleasant episode that happened to him on social media. In fact, around the street, the 18-year-old artist was criticized by a stranger for his fuchsia clothes.
Sangiovanni has decided to tell this episode, not to seek solidarity among his numerous fans, but to underline the fact that, in our country, many people still think through prejudices and preconceptions.
Below, you will find Sangiovanni’s story, shared via Instagram Stories, who invited everyone to fight for their freedoms:
I was walking down the street last night and at a certain point, I pass a guy who looks at me and says: “Aren’t you ashamed?”. Because I was dressed in fuchsia. I do not say this because I feel bad, because these things do not affect me in the least, also because I will never give the satisfaction of seeing me feel bad, I will never give it to him, and then I don’t care enough. I just wanted to tell you to make you reflect on how much in Italy there is still a strong mental closure and perhaps not only in Italy. We are not free to be what we want to be, we are not free to dress as the fuck we want, to love who the fuck we want, without being judged. However, it can be fought. I know you are with me, thanks for the support, thanks for the love.
