Aino Aalto, Eileen Grey, Denise Scott Brown, Lina Bo Bardi, Gae Aulenti are some of the protagonists of the screening whose individual paths testify to the great changes that took place not only in architecture but also in history and society related to the emancipation of women. We also rediscover lesser-known stories such as those of Alma Buscher, Marianne Brandt, Gunta Stölzl, Friedl Dicker and Lucia Moholy, women who had to fight to see their value recognized even within avant-garde institutions such as the Bauhaus of Walter Gropius.
Among the protagonists, there is also Nanda Vigo, a central figure in the Italian artistic research of the ’60s and ’70s, who connected architecture, design and art, up to the present day in which we question ourselves on the responsibility of architects in the construction of the society of the future, as told by Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, who with a careful eye on the past reflect on the potential of today’s architecture in relation to the climate crisis and urban redistribution.
