After the complaints by some Italian actresses who have told of the 'violences' suffered in the course of their profession, the '

Italian Metoo' is

back at the center of the debate in the world of cinema.

And the Minister of Culture

also intervenes , Gennaro Sangiuliano

announcing strong measures:

"The protection of women is an issue that is close to my heart and I will take action in a firm and decisive manner. The Observatory plays an important role, in a few days I will meet those responsible and I am available to work with them. Having made the appropriate assessments on the legal framework , I am available to evaluate

the hypothesis of excluding companies that have detected cases of this type

, for example, from the ministry's commission system", said the head of the culture department, answering a question from

Elisabetta Piccolotti of SI

precisely on the measures that the government intends to take in the light of the

Italian #Metoo


The theme of

violence against women

will be at the center of a speech by

Chiara Ferrani in Sanremo

, where the Milanese influencer will be one of the protagonists of the first and last evening. 

She had said no to Amadeus several times, now she has accepted to be co-host of the first and last evening of Sanremo "because I want to bring important topics to the Festival and raise awareness among the public of all ages and throughout Italy".

This is how

Chiara Ferragni

spoke in Milan about the fight against violence against women that she will bring

to the Ariston stage


The entrepreneur has decided to donate her cachet to the DiRe association.

- Women on the Network Against Violence - which manages over

100 anti-violence centers and more than 60 shelters

throughout Italy.

Not only that: in Sanremo, where she will make her television debut, she will launch her message against all forms of violence against women, starting with the less recognized ones.

"There are all types of violence, the physical one - explained the 35-year-old - is only the easiest to recognize.

We all felt like victims of violence


For her, in particular, "it is very important to talk about psychological violence".

"I myself - she said - have been

a victim of it in some relationships and almost every woman has been

. At the moment you don't realize it, you don't recognize it, that's why it's important to talk about it, to set off the alarm bells when we hear certain phrases or we feel treated in a certain

way.Until a couple of years ago we didn't talk about it

, they said 'he's jealous, he's possessive' instead they are attitudes that one shouldn't tolerate, as long as we normalize them it's difficult to get out of psychological violence, which hurts as much as physical violence".

As for his story, "there are phrases and attitudes that they are always the same, excessive possessiveness or jealousy, making you feel less, are frequent things that I have experienced in different relationships but I have not recognized them.

Sometimes I was young, others less so, the problem is that we always try to find excuses, these male attitudes are normalized and this is the first mistake". Then there is another form of

violence that is rarely talked about, the economic one

, against which the DIRe network is fighting with a work project that will be supported by the Ferragni donation.

"For me - she said - it has always been important to be financially independent in order to make the right choices for me. Cremona was full of wives who didn't work and who were afraid to leave the relationship because they had always depended on a man, and I read that in the South only a third of women work: not feeling free to leave a man is economic violence. I hope that with my example many women will understand that it is important to have something that makes us proud and free".

How all this will be brought to the Sanremo stage is still top secret, as are Chiara's looks, who have always been linked to the fashion world.

She limited herself to saying that, also as regards her choices in terms of clothes, "my entire path will be linked to this theme".

Also thanks to the support of Amadeus, which "was very welcoming and open".

If it had been up to him, Chiara would have accompanied him from start to finish, but "all the evenings would have been too much, at the beginning I wanted to do just one because it takes a crazy job".

For the kermesse "I'm getting ready trying to stay as calm as possible, I'm not an actress or a presenter, I have to be myself and that's it.

I'm rehearsing in front of family and friends, I will certainly do my best

". While the Sanremo stage could remain the entrepreneur's only TV experience, the project with

the DiRe association will

not end with the festival. The Chiara Ferragni brand will also contribute to the cause with a capsule collection accompanied by a donation .
