Everybody’s beautiful, slim, in shape. It seems in the world everybody has to look like this. Who of us has never fought with too many kilos and a body that doesn’t like? Going on a diet is a fatigue that everybody knows. But for someone this is a more difficult, almost impossible challenge . There’s someone, in fact, that is really far from the reigned beauty model, someone who has not just some more kilos, someone really fat, very fat. How is an extra large life in a world that wants you super-thin and in big shape? The obesity is not diffused only in America where it’s common known there are the extremes and the phenomenon is really visible, but it’s becoming increasingly a sanitary and social emergency even in other western countries (the Italy primarily) that had seemed immune because of their culture and tradition. In Italy there’s a public hospital specialized in treatment for the obesity. Here, everything is big, very big, extra large size and first of all, the patients. They have different pathologies but one common thing that is very evident: they are oversize, very oversize. They come here from every part of Italy, even very far away and finally they are in a place where they can try to change.
