DELFINE PROJECT← backThe therapeutic community I Delfini is a youth care centre run by the Child and Adolescent Neuropsychiatric Unit of the Niguarda Ca’ Granda Hospital in Milan that can accommodate up to 8 female teenagers aged 13-17 who have displayed signs of psychological distress of varying intensity in their early years.
An intensive treatment of their symptoms in their teen years may prevent their condition from becoming chronic, and may moreover encourage them to undertake a new growth path which may eventually lead to their re-integration into their original family and community.
Each year this community hosts a project devoted to artistic expression and the new communication technologies, the workshop for multi-media social art, in which the girls under treatment get a chance to familiarise themselves with various strands of art.
The workshop’s 2009 edition, which was supervised by multimedia artist Giada Totaro, witnessed the girls’ involvement in a piece of multimedia artwork inspired both by the conception of mirrors as objects as well as by the 1974 film The Mirror by Andrei Tarkovskij.
Giada Totaro adopted an experimental approach to the link between art-based therapy and art’s new technologies which essentially reversed traditional roles: the girls became the main driving force behind the artwork by doubling as writer, director, editor, actor’s director, director of photography, screenplayer and set designer, while the project curators stepped in as actors under their direction: the girls’ creativity was thus stimulated in an environment devoid of pressure that fully respected their sense of privacy.
