A loving look at the role of women in Italian Culture
"Men write history. Women live it." - anonymous
Italian culture has some of the strictest gender roles in the Western World, with men as the dominant figures. But for generation after generation, Italian women have been the mainstays of family, community and society. Often unheralded, the role of the woman has been to hold it all together in sometimes overwhelmingly adverse situations. In this special event - featuring our LNFI Piazza (Town hall) format - we finally put the spotlight on the Mommas and Nonnas we all owe so much too.
More events coming for May, June, September, October and November!
