L’amavo troppo e le ho sparato (I Loved Her Too Much And I Shot Her) is a project supported by the Centro Studi e Documentazione Pensiero Femminile ETS, based in Turin, which has been carrying out activities against gender-based violence for 26 years through research, training and education. The Center deals with projects aiming at the realisation of equal opportunities and non-discrimination. It collaborates with universities, the third sector, businesses and institutions. Since 2018, the Center has been implementing the SAFE project for relationship education with the aim of promoting an education free from stereotypes and prejudices, enhancing the formative aspects of family relationships, internalising and translating into one’s own experience the idea of the identical value of all human beings and opposing violence and (cyber)bullying. SAFE, through alliances between for-profit and non-profit organisations, feeds a fund to provide a network of 19 territorial nodes, spread in all Italian regions. It provides financial, communicative and didactic tools to carry out educational interventions for the prevention of gender-based violence in schools and other locations for the public, in companies and organisations.
