Everything asks for salvation should be projected in schools

There are stories that stay with us and that just don't make up their minds to let us go. Everything asks for salvation is one of them. After we have finished watching the series and finished wiping our tears, we spend the next few days returning our minds to that room, among those people, their lives and their stories.

The series directed by Francesco Brun i, seven episodes to tell the seven days of Daniele's (Federico Cesari) compulsory health treatment, deserves the nickname 'jewel', sometimes reserved for much less significant productions. It is a jewel, because it manages to touch hidden strings in each of us. Yes, in each of us. Because 'up close no one is normal'. Mental illness is frightening, it rejects, it is something that we often pretend not to understand because, deep down, we know that it lives in everyone's mind, hidden, ready to jump out in a totally unexpected way.

So Daniele, a "normal" boy (in quotes, like all of us) wakes up in a psychiatric hospital, surrounded by people he doesn't want to have anything to do with. He wants to leave, he doesn't understand what happened, because he has to share the space with boys and men he is scared of, almost disgusted by. The doctor is brusque, the nurses dictate rules, everything is alien and hostile.

We don't want to make too many spoilers because the viewer will have to get to know his roommates slowly, exactly like Daniele. Get ready to fall in love with Gianluca, Mario, Giorgio and all the other characters. Each of them will tiptoe (or a little less gently) into your head and stay there. Keep your handkerchiefs ready too, because he is crying. And how if he cries. But not because the way of telling the series is of the artifact and tear-catching genre, it is the exact opposite. It is delicate, ironic, true. There are moments (the little cars lined up on Alessandro's table, the teacher's pajamas, Daniele's memory of his mother who picks him up at school, Gianluca's bag of clothes) that strike like knives in the heart.

But above all there is an extraordinary tale of empathy, solidarity and union in a world that hurts even when everything seems "normal". That evil of living that is often not recognized, is diminished. The world of "crazy" to keep away because they scare us and scare us because they are like us. The point of view is not unique, the series gives us the opportunity to enter the lives of patients but also that of nurses, doctors and relatives of those suffering from a mental disorder. There are no good and bad. Only human beings.

“Leave your gaze free, do not let anyone tell you the world” says Mario to Daniele. And it is precisely this that gives us Everything asks for salvation. A free look that allows us to understand without prejudice, which teaches us to welcome and take that extra step to understand that behind everyone there is always a story that deserves to be heard. The series should really be shown everywhere, because his teachings are precious. Schools, offices, public places. Where there are people who face that world that can hurt every day.

Netflix has also published on its YouTube channel the new episode of Parliamone, the format that talks about representation. At the center of this new episode, released a few days after Everything asks for salvation, there is mental health (quoting Mencarelli in the video "A gigantic theme, just think that among the first 3 drugs sold in the world there is a sedative" ).

The panel is led by Daniele Mencarelli, author of the book from which the series is based and writer of the series, with him to address the issue: Federico Cesari, protagonist of the series, Arisa, Alessia Lanza ( influencer) and the psychotherapist Luca Mazzucchelli.
