The show

The exhibition "Il Filo Rosso" was created to tell stories of women and struggles to the new generations, curated by women from the UDI (Union of Women in Italy), the feminist movements of Lecco and the Liceo Artistico Medardo Rosso, from an idea by Enrica Bartesaghi and Giacinta Papini The exhibition will be staged from 31 October to 28 November at Palazzo delle Paure, located in Piazza XX Settembre, 22, in Lecco.

The project was born when, speaking of the female situation in Italy (and beyond), some women wondered what was left of their battles and decided to try to understand how to share them with the girls and women of today.

The aim of the exhibition is to recover female historical memory to talk about a general phenomenon (national and international), told and seen through the eyes of Lecco women, and more precisely of a group of young and very young Lecco women who around the years The 70s and 80s of the last century gave birth to a feminist and women's movement of the UDI. A movement that has paved the way for gender struggles in the world of politics, work, family life. The exhibition is carried out through research through 32 interviews with women from UDI (Union of Women in Italy) and women who have been part of the Lecco feminist collective. The red thread, suggested by the title of the exhibition, is intended as the bond that unites all women and that will not break until their stories and struggles are told.

"We are happy to contribute to the creation of an exhibition with a very strong symbolic value that returns a cross-section of everyday life capable of telling stories through the eyes of historical women's movements - explains the Councilor for Culture of the Municipality of Lecco Simona Piazza - this exhibition is aimed at to the new generations and allows an important historical memory to be kept alive, helps to observe daily reality from different perspectives and stimulates today's girls to reflect on their social condition ".
