The show

The exhibition "Guerriere dal sol Levante", curated by the Yoshin Ryu Association in collaboration with the MAO Oriental Art Museum of Turin, wants to pay tribute to the figure of the warrior woman in Japan.

The history of Japan includes a period spanning eight centuries characterized by many battles and battles, in which women, especially those of warrior class, were educated to carry out every task, from the financial and economic management of their own family to those that could lead to the use of arms.

The warrior woman, onna-bugeisha, was prepared for the defense of dwellings, trained in the use of various weapons, pitched battles and even the possibility of dying herself.

Famous names remain from that past, whose legendary feats are remembered through theatrical dramas, paintings and film plots.
