'I was only sixteen', is the title of the ballad of the 'Youth Project' of the National Cancer Institute of Milan. A text of true stories in which the boys being treated narrate their own experiences as a journey between unknowns and dreams
“ I was only sixteen ”, is the title of the new song of the “Progetto Giovani” of the National Cancer Institute of Milan sung with Tony Hadley, former frontman of Spandau Ballet and global pop icon. A piece of music to give voice to the experience of adolescents who experience an oncological disease in their prime. If the chances of recovery are good, it does not always happen on the national territory that adequate infrastructure and services are available.
We need to raise public awareness, network and the most effective way is to tell stories of kids who cross their youth as a kind of frontier. Every path is good, every path can prove useful: for this reason, for years the Youth Project, supported by the Bianca Garavaglia Association, has continued to follow different paths between various arts.
A TEXT OF TRUE STORIES – The text of this song, for example, comes from the podcast, “Taken from a true story” in which young people in treatment narrated their experiences as a journey between unknowns and dreams. From those words a ballad was born, the melody of which was composed and played by Faso, bassist of the group Elio e le Storie Tese, together with Stefano Signoroni, Giacomo Ruggeri and Tommaso Ruggeri with the singing contributions of Miriam Conte. The song is available on all streaming platforms and the proceeds from digital downloads will be donated to this flagship of Pediatric Oncology. Here is the link to listen to the song .Source: oggi.it
