The Gaze of Women Travelers on Middle ItalyThe Gaze of Women Travellers on Middle Italy

30 September 2021: Federica Kappler (Fondazione Serbelloni, Milano), presented her paper Hilde Lotz-Bauer, fotografare l’Italia di mezzo con «bravura» (in italiano) at the conference Lo sguardo delle viaggiatrici sull’Italia di mezzo; Scritture, immagini, visioni, transcodificazioni organised by Dipartimento di Scienze Umane, Università degli Studi dell’Aquila in Aquila.

"The aim of the conference is to solicit contributions and reflections on the women who wrote, painted and narrated these less-traveled areas of central Italy between the 19th and 20th centuries (among them Margaret Fuller, Estella Canziani, Amy Atkinson and Anne MacDonnell, just to mention a few traveling through Abruzzo). Our purpose is to analyse and compare the idiosyncratic ways of narrating the territory typical of women authors and artists, exceptional gazes on marginal places."
