Why can a man "be ugly" while women are required to always look young and attractive? This is a question for which we do not have a satisfactory answer. A woman is born, grows up and spends her entire life keeping away from being identified as "ugly". Giulia Blasi tells, through a collection of short but explosive essays halfway between ferocity and laughter, the story of her body from infancy to aging: the story of the body of every woman who goes into the world with the awareness of the amount of space that it can occupy and the attention it can expect due to how it is labeled. Giulia Blasi turns the question with ironic skill: who said that, to occupy a public space, to live fully in society, one must necessarily be beautiful?
