Women Who Made Women

BOOK: Non-conformist extraordinary biographies of Nilde Iotti, Lina Merlin, Carla Lonzi and many other women are the contents of a theatre play named Women Who Created Women. The focus is on personalities who hit significant political and social targets in the history of the country: from the female voting right gained to houses of tolerance being closed, from the law on divorce to the one on abortion. Female characters leave History and enter the Stage passing the energy of their determination to new generations as, according to Magda Poli: «Theatre, like life in general, is an exploration of the present with a glance thrown at the future without losing the luggage of the past».
