“Classical roots: origins of the feminine”. Announcing the first date of the latest lecture series

9 September 2019

The ancient Roman Senate opens its doors to the public once again for the PArCo Thursdays lecture series, with  Radici classiche: alle origini del femminile”, (“Classical roots: the origins of the feminine”), a series of conferences that compares the representations and daily lives of women in Roman society and later periods.

Against the evocative backdrop of the Curia Iulia the conferences, in the form of conversations between two specialists, give the public the opportunity to reflect together upon the history of Roman women and upon those aspects that continue to influence our interpretation of female existence within domestic, public and political spheres up to the current day.

The first date is scheduled for Thursday 12 September, at 16:30 in the Curia Iulia. After an introduction by Alfonsina Russo and Andrea Giardina, the lecture series will kick off with:

Madri mogli e cittadine esemplari (Mothers, wives and model citizens)

Francesca Cenerina, University of Bologna

Simonetta Soldani, University of Florence
