Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is the term used to refer to the discriminatory policy of the United States of America between 1994 and 2011, on military sexual orientation.
The work was born as a result of my finding of a notebook from 1951 belonging to an Italian corporal student; hidden among the pages is a love letter addressed to another man.
The work is a reflection on the presence and condition of homosexuality in the army, where virility has always been imposed as an impregnable principle and where, despite this, the feeling of love continues to exist, to survive, to blossom.”
(Pisa, IT, 1986)
