Magda Poli

Sebben che siamo donne – Le donne in Lombardia dal risorgimento alla ricostruzione

BOOK: Alessandrina Ravizza, Anna Kuliscioff, Fernanda Wittgens, Wilma Conti and many others: the history of Milan and Italy is told by extraordinary women in a theatre piece that mixes voices of the present and of the past when feminism is «joy, insolence, impertinence and subversion». From the Unification of Italy to the post-war Reconstruction, the Lombard women of this story are patriots, philanthropists, emancipation promoters, partisans, intellectuals, women of action capable of decisive achievements in politics, in the society, at work and inside the family.
