Portrait of Anna Kuliscioff (property of the Filippo Turati Foundation for Historical Studies) from Popote, Paris


The appearance of women on the public scene in the Western world between the 19th and 20th century was one of the most significant aspects of the historical turning point set in motion by the emergence of mass society, the second industrial revolution, and urbanism. The widening of citizenship put female participation in politics, until that time strictly reserved to men, at the order of the day.

Reconstructing the lives of the protagonists of those days takes us into the heart of problems that are still relevant today, and is testimony of a complex process of emancipation that is far from finished, and that touches upon the role and image of women in society and family, public and private; on economic independence and professional life; on reconciling work and motherhood; on the politics of safeguarding and welfare, also in light of new individual and social needs; and on the network of relationships and political activism.

A narrative of freedom, the emancipation of women has become an essential standard of democracy in contemporary society.

Our guide in this complex subject matter is the biography of Anna Kuliscioff, one of the symbolic figures of that era because of her extraordinary social and political engagement, and her great personality and authority: a free woman.

TO NOT FORGET

Filippo Turati’s expatriation as told by Sandro Pertini

Filippo Turati, whose political and moral stature made him the true representative of antifascism, needed to escape from the prison that Italy was becoming because of the fascist laws, to go abroad and make the world aware of the people’s protest against the fascist dictatorship.

Having fled his home in Milan the 24th of November 1926 despite heavy police surveillance, Turati hid in Caronno, in Varese, at the house of journalist Ettore Albini. Having discovered Turati’s escape, Mussolini ordered to find him. All stations of the carabinieri are mobilized. The 8th of December, evading every watch, Turati succeeds in reaching my city, Savona. It was righty decided that Turati needed a travel partner. I was chosen because the police commission of Savona had sentenced me to five years of confinement, and for this I was wanted.
