AAGD stands for Associazione per l'Aiuto ai Giovani Diabetici (in English it can translate as "Help to young diabetics").
In Italy there are almost 20.000 children that suffer from diabete mellito tipo 1, a rare form of diabetes. This project was made for one of my exams (it could be realized but it wasn't chosen by the Association) to help them through the 5x1000.
THE PROJECT & HEADLINE
I wanted all of it to be colorful, full of life and hope, just like children are. Hope for a normal life, a normal future, a painless one.
I wanted to show to the person who could see and read the brochure at the hospitals or the posters in the streets that this possibility IS REAL thanks to his/her help. A help which could be donated through 5x1000, where
that "simple 5" could be multiplied again, and again, ad AGAIN. 20.000 times 1000.
To promote the campaign and also to inform people about this disease (that isn't really known), I created a spot for the radio.
The song is "Gli ostacoli del cuore" by Ligabue and Elisa, two of the most known Italian artists. The voice is mine.
