Inspiration research

My initial approach to research for this project was looking at the lifestyle of working class males and guys who over-perform masculinity. I looked into my own background of growing up in a suburban area of Rome, and the guys my friends and I used to hang with when we were teen agers. Secondly, I looked into transgenderism and fetishisation of trans bodies and carried out in depth research on underwear and sports wear, as both can be seen as representing certain types of fetishes.
