Colours of darkness: thanks to a course organized by the Unione Italiano ciechi e ipovedenti [Italian Union for the Blind and Partially Sighted] of Turin. Women who are unable to see learn the art of make-up. The idea came to Nunziata Panzarea, in charge of the association’s equal opportunities committee. Despite being blind from birth, this woman succeeds in making herself up, marking her cosmetics with labels in braille so as to distinguish between the colours. “Often”, she explained, “people who can’t see tend to neglect their looks, and yet the way in which we present ourselves is the basic visiting card in the life of relations – the starting point of self-respect and of the respect of others.
