An upcoming generation of young women already working to correct gender inequality

Our summertime exhibition at Il Palmerino

A show for Lea Colliva. An Artist on the Pathway of the Gods. Rediscovering women artists is about creative space: where they lived and worked… and where they exhibit today. From June 5 to July 6, visit our latest exhibition 'Lea Colliva: An artist on the Pathway of the gods' featuring the twentieth-century painter at Il Palmerino, the fifteenth-century villa turned cultural center. Inauguration: June 5 at 6pm (Via il Palmerino 6). The show's centerpiece, an early self-portrait, was restored during the 'Women who drew' project to recover art-by-women on paper, spearheaded by Beatrice Cuniberti at the Atelier degli Artigianelli. Paintings and drawings will soon be arriving from the Colliva-Bertocchi Foundation and Archive in Monzuno (Bologna), travelling the Etruscan pilgrim trail to reach the former home of artist Lola Costa and writer Vernon Lee. A small-scale show for an explosive artist producing what the Fascists called 'degenerative' art at a time when 'rebel' Italians courted the Informal movement.
